Separable high explosive systems

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A number of approaches have been considered regarding the feasibility of separable high explosive systems for possible application in the Super Safe Program (Ambassador). After a very brief and limited investigation we have categorized various systems and given examples. The two basic approaches in the Ambassador program appear to be: Movement of fissionable material, and movement of explosives. Since explosives are our business, we will comment only on the latter approach. Movement of the explosive could entail small amounts of HE, such as for a detonator, booster, or a portion of the main charge.. These possibilities tend to beg the ... continued below

Since explosives are our business, we will comment only on the latter approach. Movement of the explosive could entail small amounts of HE, such as for a detonator, booster, or a portion of the main charge.. These possibilities tend to beg the issue of true safety and dispersal. Movement of the entire main charge or of separate non HE components is certainly more desirable. Separable explosive systems are discussed.
