Abstract : A compact, reliable, nonincendiary fireline cord detonator is disclosed which attaches without tools to a length of explosive fireline cord utilized to clear a path through a wooded or brush covered area. The detonator uses an exploding bridgewire squib to protect against a premature explosion caused by static electricity or electric current induced by spurious electromagnetic radiation. (Author)
