Abstract:

A miniature safety and arming device for use in missile systems is being developed that provides out-of-line explosive safety, acceleration-time-integrated arming, a self-destruct feature, an impact-functioning switch, and an arming-status switch. Preliminary tests on two of these devices indicate that a mechanism one-eighth the volume of a present S and A can be achieved, and with slight modification can meet the requirements of many missile systems.
