Abstract : A fuze system for cluster weapons comprises a dispenser fuze signal generator, low complexity bomblet fuze signal receivers and a fluidic signal link. The dispenser fuze generates a pneumatic enabling and arming signal to the bomblet fuzes and opens the dispenser. Derormable signal processing diaphragms and detents enable the bomblet fuzes and arm the bomblets upon dispenser opening.
