 Abstract
In this paper, a novel impact sensing device for an ESAF(Electronic Safe and Arming Fuze) is presented. An impact sensing device is mounted in front of a weapon, and it detects an impact when it crashes against a target. There are two main design requirements to enhance the firing functional reliability of the ESAF; an operational reliability and a reduced latency, which is a delay time needed for sensing the impact. The design method of the contact-type impact sensing device, which employs an FPCB(Flexible Printed Circuit Board) so it can be used other weapons, is proposed. The tests demonstrated that the design described in this work show a reduced delay time with ensuring the operational reliability.
