establishes the design safety criteria for munition ignition systems and
associated ignition safety devices used to arm and fire munition propulsion
Applicability This standard
applies to the design of ignition systems and ignition safety devices in new
exploratory, advanced, engineering, and operational system developments.
Ignition systems incorporating or initiating one or more detonating components
will be subjected to the requirements of this standard in the same manner as
those incorporating only pyrotechnic components.
1.3 Excluded Munitions This standard does
