This report discusses the work performed during a Production Engineeringbuild program on the XM587E2 electronic time fuze. Following a producibility study phase that modified the baseline packing configuration, fuzes were built for field-test purposes. A limited air gun shock test program was performed at HDL to evaluate a new encapsulation compound and the mechanical integrity of the modified fuze. A limited amount of engineering was also performed to increase the producibility of certain aspects of the fuze. A review of design, production, and process problems is presented in the report together with functional data on the fuzes fabricated.
