Pagination or Media Count:
An insensitive electroexplosive device to electrically ignite explosives is disclosed. This device is inherently immune to radio frequency RF radiation, and also provides protection against DC or very low frequency RF induced by arcing. A central feature is use of zeners and capacitors to form a reactively balanced bridge circuit. When constructed in semiconductor form as described the device is capable of incorporation in small caliber ordnance.
