Abstract:

QUANTIC INDUSTRIES OFFERS THIS CONCEPT FOR IMPROVING SAFETY AND RELIABILITY OF IN-LINE FUZING. AN IMMEDIATE APPLICATION IS THE UNIVERSAL AIR DELIVERED SAFE AND ARM. THIS TERM IS A MAGNETICALLY ACTUATED SWITCH TO PREVENT INADVERTENT ARMING OF AN IN-LINE FUZE. THIS SWITCH IS BUILT INTO THE CORE OF THE FUZE'S HIGH VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER. TRANSFORMER ACTION IS PREVENTED BY A PORTION OF THE CORE BEING SATURATED BY A PERMANENT MAGNET. THE SWITCH IS ENABLED BY OPPOSING THE MAGNET'S FLUX WITH A DC CURRENT THROUGH A COIL WOUND AROUND THE MAGNET. THIS SWITCH IS PARTICULARLY SUITED TO BOMB OR DISPERSE APPLICATIONS WHERE THE AIR TURBINE'S OUTPUT POWER CAN BE EXCESSIVE, AND THEREFORE THE FUZE IS NOT ENERGY LIMITED. THE SWITCH WOULD BE ENABLED BY ENVIRONMENTAL MEANS.
