Abstract : The development of electrical time and impact fuzes was carried on by the Rheinmetall-Borsig organization of H. Rhulemann. A large number of documents concerning electrical fuze development have been obtained from Rhulemann's laboratory and shipped to the Explosives Investigation Laboratory, Indian Head, MD. The present report contains information obtained in interrogations of Rhulemann and in visits to factories where electrical fuze components were made. It is written to supplement the documents, and is intended to cover only the following subjects, with some introductory matter: (1) The volume of production of the more important German electrical fuzes. (2) Performance of electrical time and impact fuzes; difficulties encountered in service. (3) Details of manufacture of fuzes and components.
