Abstract : An existing booster and fuze combination is modified to provide relief from temperature and pressure buildup in an open fire environment. The booster explosive, thus, is encased in a low temperature melting plastic and the main housing is vented by boring a number of passages through the major thread diameter shoulder of the fuze case.
