Pagination or Media Count:
A simple, inexpensive electronic trigger device has been designed, fabricated, and tested for use in demolition, booby trap, and perimeter defense applications. The interruption of a minute current caused when a fine trip wire is broken is used to switch an electric current to a detonator, claymore mine, alarm or similar device. Tests conducted to date show its feasibility. Recommendations for additional work include final selection of operation current and voltage as determined by user requirements, and tests to assure conformance with environmental specifications.
