Design Considerations for Electro-Explosive Devices 630256

Electro-explosive devices (EED’s) are characterized by their input requirements and output characteristics. Generally, the input energies for EED function may be high as in exploding wire devices, or low as in conventional “hot wire” systems. The electro-explosive interface problem is considered here.
Safety and reliability factors are implicit in the design of either category of initiator, such as: the insensitivity of the pyrotechnic or explosive used; the resistance to extraneous electrical energy from rf sources; and the stability to environments consisting of high thermal and/or high density nuclear radiation conditions.
Methods of designing EED’s for missile and space applications are also considered.
