Abstract:

This patent application discloses a multi-store, electrical pulse initiated launcher that fits into, and is electrically connected with, a transporting vehicle and that contains sequentially-stacked assemblies. An electrical pulse from the transporting vehicle causes the varying burn resistor with the least value to transfer the electric charge to a gas generating cartridge. The cartridge provides sufficient gas pressure to force the store out of the launcher.
