Abstract:

A nominal 0.3 second, flash-initiated, delay detonator has been developed for the AN-M173A1 Fuze. A limited number of detonators were subjected to standard Navy rough handling and surveillance tests. These tests were successfully met. An independent evaluation of the detonator confirmed the soundness of the detonator. The detonator is completely documented with drawings and specifications.
