Abstract : The patent relates to a fuzing system in which a third or obscuration channel having a forward looking narrow beam width detects a target and generates a signal which is fed to a sequence computer. If within a predetermined time after receipt of the third channel pulse, a second pulse is received from either of the two regular infrared channels, a pulse is generated to actuate the firing circuit. If the above time sequence of pulses is not present, the fuze system then functions in the normal two channel mode of operation.
