Abstract
The Insensitive Munitions (IM) compliant initiation system uses a unique approach to initiate the TATB. The initiation systems departure from standard approaches is the design uses all the stored energy as compared to standard approaches that use a small percentage of the stored energy with the remaining energy wasted. The unique approach provides the capability to develop a 1.6 hazard level compliant initiation system. The design does not affect the electronics design, so current proven and certfiend configurations can be used.
