Abstract
This proposal describes new low cost, low risk semiconductor-based approaches to fuze trigger circuit technology. These innovative approaches build on the promising new technology platform developed by ARIA as part of earlier SBIR research. ARIA's technology platform, initially developed for driving extremely high speed (400 picosecond rise time), high peak current pulses (400A) through laser diodes, is based on off-the-shelf semi-conductor switching technology. This research will extend the scalable technology platform to achieve peak fuze currents of 1000-2000 A. Not customarily used in fuze triggers, this unique technology platform will advance the state of the art of Safe, Arm and Fire devices for both government and commercial applications.
