Abstract:

This report relates the results of the applied research, design, development and testing of the FMU-120B Bomb Fuze. The program was fully successful with regard to meeting the technical goals of 1 functional compatibility with nose well installation, 2 electrically powered from the accessible and visible front face of the fuze, 3 compatibility with the laser guided bomb LGB and HOBO EO Weapon Systems, 4 providing operation from a 200-VDC to 300-VDC supply, and 5 including ground selectable 5.5-and 12.0- second arming times. Laboratory and field tests have demonstrated that the developed fuze meets the environmental and functional boundaries as delineated in the subject scope of work. The final fuze design was designated as the FMU- 120B Guided Bomb Proximity Fuze.
