Abstract : A device for adjustably changing the arming time of a projectile having an arming mechanism for arming the projectile at a predetermined rate is presented. A pallet made of magnetically susceptable material and supported for repetitive movement is disposed within a generated magnetic field. The pallet is connected to the arming mechanism for corresponding movement therewith and is driven by the arming mechanism while arming. The magnetic field induces within the pallet, magnetic losses which retards the arming rate.
