Abstract
DEVELOPMENT OF A SOFT INGNITION SYSTEM FOR SELF CONTAINED MUNITIONS IS PROPOSED. THE IGNITER WILL RELY ON A LASER\FIBER OPTIC SYSTEM TO ACHIEVE SIMULTAVEOUS MULTIPLE POINT IGNITION AT SEVERAL AXIAL LOCATIONS IN THE CENTER CORE PRIMER TUBE. PHASE I OF THE PROGRAM CONSISTS OF A PROOF-PRINCIPLE DEMONSTRATION OF THE CONCEPT THROUGH EXTENSIVE LABORATORY TEST LEADING TO AN IGNITER TUBE DESIGN WITH UNIFORM FLAMESPREDING CHARCTERISTICS. MUCH OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS ARE BASED ON KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERTISE WITH LASER IGNITION TECHNOLOGY AND CONCEPTS DEVELOPED IN PREVIOUS PROJECTS FUNDED BY BOTH THE ARMY AND NAVY.
