Abstract : An inductance fuze for armor defeating shells and missiles that utilizes lumped neutralization, i.e., cancellation of an AC voltage, induced by a primary coil in a sensing coil under free-space conditions, by an equal and opposite voltage. The lumped neutralization voltage is obtained from a neutralizing coil that is also coupled to the primary. Adjustment of neutralization is made by translating axially either the sensing coil, the neutralizing coil or both relative to the primary coil. The physical configurations of the coils can be adjusted to be accommodated within the fuze ogive as long as a certain relationship involving the number of turns and the flux amplitudes is maintained.
