Abstract : An impulsive safety-arming device provides handling safety in a rocket motor. Prior to arming, a piston is blocked in position to contain a squib, thereby preventing inadvertent ignition. After arming, the piston block is removed allowing high temperature, high pressure gas from the squib to force the piston past vent ports and to escape and ignite the motor. (Author)
