Abstract : This report describes a combination gas generator and pyrotechnic separation device which causes a separation of elements safely, quietly, quickly, and without the production of loose parts or release of combustion gases to the ambient environment. A tubular tensile element houses a quantity of pyrotechnic material which, when ignited, burns, fuses or melts a tensile element allowing the separable elements to break apart. High pressure gases generated by the combustion of the pyrotechnic material aids in separating the separable elements.
