Laser fiber optics ordnance initiation system
Author and Affiliation:
Yang, L. C.(California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., United States)
Abstract: Recent progress on system development in the laser initiation of explosive devices is summarized. The topics included are: development of compact free-running mode and Q-switched lasers, development of low-loss fiber optic bundles and connectors, study of nuclear radiation effects on the system, characterization of laser initiation sensitivities of insensitive high explosives, and the design methods used to achieve attractive system weight and cost savings. Direction for future work is discussed.
