Abstract:

This report details the test results of a supporting research effort to extend the minimum arming distance of the M505A3 20 mm point detonating fuze to 10 meters. Minor modifications to the standard M405 resulted in zero functions out of twenty-five 25 fuzes fired at 10 meter targets and zero functions of ten fuzes fired at 15 meter targets.
