Abstract:

A disposable EOD dearmer includes an propellant charge permanently affixed to a tubular body for propelling a dearmer slug against a dud casing. The pressure versus time characteristic of the charge can be selected to provide a preselected velocity for the slug at impact with the casing, and the initial position of the slug can be selected to provide a preselected delay between ignition of the charge and impact between the slug and the casing.
