Abstract : Procedures for deriving the probability that a warhead will detonate in each segment of its trajectory are given for the case in which its trajectory is segmented into m discrete, disjoint segments and a multiple fuzing strategy is used to initiate warhead detonation. These procedures should be useful for studying the properties of complex fuzing systems which can be modeled as multiple fuzing strategies as well as for studying the properties of multiple fuzing strategies themselves.
