Projectiles exist with a stored electrical charge during flight and an electrically energized detonator which activates upon impact. Premature activation in flight, which can be caused by spurious voltage, is eliminated by the addition of a voltage threshold blocking device. Detonator activation will then occur, as intended, by the voltage released upon impact. Author
