Abstract
A PRINCIPAL PROBLEM IN THE DESIGN OF SAFE-ARM DEVICES FOR ANY MUNITION IS TO INSURE THAT WHEN IN SAFE POSITION CERTAIN SWITCHES WHICH SHOULD BE CLOSED, REMAIN CLOSED, AND CERTAIN SWITCHES WHICH SHOULD BE OPEN, REMAIN OPEN, WHEN THE MUNITION IS SUBJECTED TO THE VARIOUS ENVIRONMENTS OF SHOCK, VIBRIATION, ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION, OR TEMPERATURE EXTREMES THAT MAY BE EXPERIENCED IN THE STOCKPILE-TOTARGET SEQUENCE. AFTER ARMING, WHEN THESE SWITCHES HAVE BEEN OPERATED, THE SAME CRITERIA SHOULD AGAIN APPLY. MECHANICAL, MAGNETIC, AND OPTICAL TECHNIQUES WILL BE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE NEW AND NOVEL SOLUTIONS TO THIS PROBLEM.
