Abstract:

A research and development program was conducted to demonstrate the ability of a Safe Separation Sensor SSS to accurately determine arming distances for conventional warhead missile S and A. The basic sensing concept was that used in the Air Force SRAM Missile. This device detects single axis acceleration and performs a double integration to provide arming distance information. During this program, the device was successfully miniaturized and its g detection range was extended to demonstrate compatibility with conventional munition requirements. Arming range accuracies achieved represent a significant improvement over techniques now used in S and A systems. Prototype SSSs and an Instrument Control Package ICP were furnished for sponsor evaluation.
