Abstract : A safety-arming device for use in a highly maneuverable missile is disclosed which takes into account lateral acceleration of the missile and selects the proper point in the trajectory after which arming of the missile warhead may safely proceed. The safety-arming device uses a series of electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical interlocks to insure that premature arming of the missile warhead does not occur. (Author)
