Abstract:

A wind-driven fluidic generator of the reed type has been developed at the Harry Diamond Laboratories HDL as a power source for the Advanced Beehive Fuze. Results of laboratory studies and field tests conducted in 75-mm Howitzers indicate that the fluidic generator is capable of meeting the muzzle action requirements of the Beehive fuze. Airgun test results indicate that the device is mechanically rugged to withstand the high setback force environment 25 k g encountered by the Beehive rounds.
