Research Institution
Nuvotronics proposes a revolutionary improvement in MEMS fuze technology by bringing MEMS-like miniaturization and batch fabrication to the entire fuze assembly and packaging process. The result yielding a monolithic, in-plane, self packaged and complete fuze product with minimal assembly and therefore, no automation investment required. Our solution, the Xynamoâ„¢ Safety and Arming device, is based on the exclusive Nuvotronicsâ„¢ PolyStrataâ„¢ MEMS process. The proposed solution will provide ARDEC with significantly improved safety and arming fuzes with the following key advantages: low cost, reduced manufacturing capital investment, high volume and high yield batch production, scalable manufacturing design, hermetic sealing and high reliability.
