Abstract : This invention relates to a safing and arming device with a detonator rotor contained therein and being associated with an explosive train. The detonator rotor is mounted for rotational movement on a shaft connected to a metal housing. The small cylindrical rotor has three openings that contain three detonators in an angular configuration. This configuration gives new and unexpected results in terms of fuze design simplification and cost reduction.
