A triggering system is described that provides for fusing a self-forging warhead or other warhead to fire down on a target as the vehicle carrying the warhead flys horizontally just over the top of the target. The triggering method uses an active optical system transmitter-receiver on board the vehicle which establishes a triggering window in space just below the vehicle. A triggering or detonating signal is developed when a target enters the window. Author
