Abstract:

This report describes and illustrates the design and operation of a safety-ignition device SID that was developed for use with a 750-lb solid- propellant apogee rocket motor. This device, used in combination with the Applications Technology Satellite for NASA, is primarily intended to prevent ignition of the rocket motor during ground handling and prelaunch operations, and in orbital flight provided reliable ignition of the apogee rocket motor with a high degree of safety and operational reliability.
