The tester mechanically sequences the acceleration sensing elements of a safe and arm device with forces applied through air cylinders. The air cylinders are controlled by a fluidic logic and timing circuit with continuously variable time sequences programmable. The tester has been successfully demonstrated to meet extremely accurate time requirements plus or minus 20 milliseconds over one second intervals and plans are being made for its use in production acceptance testing.
