Abstract:

An air-driven alternator that was developed to provide electrical energy and a second safing signature for the 60-mm Multioption Fuze for mortars MOFM was tested successfully in the wind tunnel, in a rain field, and in extreme temperature environment conditions. The alternator design was modified so that it can be fabricated from low-cost stamped parts in large quantities. The new design satisfies the electrical power requirements of the fuze.
