Abstract:

The RIG Squib is a combination attenuator and electroexplosive device which can be used as a replacement for squibs employed in various ordnance circuits. The attenuator portion of the squib is a low pass device whereby direct current dc and low frequency energy are permitted to enter the squib section relatively unaffected, while high frequency electromagnetic energy impinging upon the attenuators input is reduced to a small level. As a result, utilization of the RIG Squib could serve to preclude or greatly reduce the hazard of stray electromagnetic radiation initiating ordnance items.
