Abstract:

The design objective of this study was to demonstrate feasibility of the dual pressure sensing safing and arming S and A mechanism which was designed to arm on receipt of a low pressure signal supplied in the dispenser and the high pressure pulse associated with the propellant dispersion event. Following extensive tests of an original dual pressure S and A mechanism design, work was directed toward analysis of a miniature design. The miniature S and A mechanism was evaluated in a series of tests, and, with final modifications, the desired performance was demonstrated to establish mechanism feasibility.
