Abstract : The patent relates to a time delay depth charge having a water actuated switch, an adjustable timer, and a firing circuit. The switch is actuated by submersion and operates to enable the timer: the timer triggers the firing circuit after a pre-selected period of time; and the firing circuit, thus triggered, provides an electrical output pulse for detonating the explosive charge.
