Title: SAFETY DEVICE
Abstract:
Examples of safety devices for use with a munition are provided, the munition including a munition explosive and a safe and arm (S&A) device for activation of the munition explosive. In some examples the safety device includes a switch member and an actuation mechanism. The switch member is configured for being disposed between the munition explosive and the S&A device, the switch member being movable between at least two switch positions. In a first switch position (an arming prevention position (APP)), arming communication between the munition explosive and the S&A device is prevented. In a second switch position (an arming enabling position (AEP)), arming communication between the munition explosive and the S&A device is allowed. The actuation mechanism is configured for selectively moving the switch member at least from the APP to the AEP to thereby enable the S&A device, when armed, to detonate the munition explosive via the switch member.
