Abstract:

A feasibility study was successfully conducted to determine a design approach for the development of a Liquid Annular Orifice Dashpot timing and self-destruct fuze assembly which would interface with a Sandia Laboratory Seismic Trigger and have an eleven-second arming time and a 20-minute self- destruct time. A design was evolved which successfully passed in-line detonator propagation and out-of-line detonator safety tests and fulfilled the required arming and self-destruct times. An addition to the study proved the feasibility of incorporating an electronic package self-destruct system.
