Abstract:

The purpose of the work described in this report was to determine whether an effective impact sensor could be obtained without substantial deterioration of the I. R. transmission of the window from a very thin layer of metal or semi-conductor material applied to an I.R. transparent window substrate. Such an impact sensor would be useful in providing a nose impact fuzing system for an infra-red guided missile where the infra-red window was located at the nose of the missile.
