Abstract : The patent application describes an energy detection circuit for determining an unacceptable limit of stray energy in an armament firing circuit. A resistive load is connectable with an armament firing circuit and any firing circuit voltage developed across the resistive load serves as an input to a first amplifier. A diode bridge circuit in association with the first amplifier provides low level AC detection and a complex R-C feedback impedance is provided to give the detecting circuit an output proportional to the energy content of an input pulse. The rectified voltage output from the first amplifier is compared with a reference voltage to determine whether the stray energy in the armament firing circuit is at an acceptable level.
