Abstract : Described is a pyrotechnic delay fuze, for use in extended time explosive ordnances, comprising a pyrotechnic delay cord in a spiral race in the base of the fuze. This system is activated through associated ignition materials. Upon initiation and propagation of the delay composition in the spiral race, the fuze provides a longer delay period and greater precision and reliability. (Author)
