The SAE International AS-1 Steering Group, Aircraft Systems and System Integration, formed SAE AS-1B7, Fuze Mechanical Task Group, to generate an Aerospace Standard (AS) to support interoperability and interchangeability of airborne weapons and their fuzes. This effort was initiated in response to a request made to the SAE AS-1 Steering Group by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Air Armament Panel for AS-1 to undertake a study or series of studies related to airborne weapons fuze standardization.
The specific charter of the Fuze Mechanical Task Group is to: “Study, define and develop standards and standards related documents for airborne mechanical fuze interfaces such as fuze wells, mechanical safety linkages and fuze associated components in order to achieve airborne fuzing systems interoperability.”
This standard addresses the 3-in fuze well, as this is the most common size currently used by airborne weapons of NATO countries with field installable fuzes.
