Electronic Safe Arm Devices
|Hi-Shear Technology Corporation developed the first successful fully electronic, range-qualified, flight termination system flown at the White Sands Missile Range. The electronic Safe Arm Fuze (ESAF) meets MIL-STD-1316 requirements and utilizes an Exploding Foil Initiator (EFI). Low-energy and high-power requirements make EFI's safer to use than the hot bridgewire detonators normally found in electro-mechanical SAF's.
EFI's also provide short, precision firing times. Our ESAF is a low weight (less than 1.0 pound) and compact (1x3x4 inches) unit that meets typical DoD environmental and tactical requirements. The unit can be tailored for a variety of applications without compromising reliability or safety.
This in-line system MIL-STD-1316 qualified Electronic Safe Arm Fuze (ESAF) is a dual-mode, single-channel, fully electronic safe arm fuze with a removable keylock assembly. Its function is to preclude premature arming and consequent initiation of the detonator during transportation, handling, pre-launch and launch conditions. It also functions when commanded as flight termination (missile destruct) during missile fly out.
The Company also manufactures traditional electro-mechanical SAF's for use in systems requiring out-of-alignment detonator safing.
