Abstract:

A fuzing device for a submunition or munition comprises an airtight housing containing a pressure chamber communicating through an orifice to a diaphragm with a firing pin attached thereto. The fuze is actuated by pressurizing the chamber with gas which flows through the orifice at a predetermined rate until the total pressure on the diaphragm causes it to deform sufficiently to activate a detonator.
