A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value. Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea, and ground forces. Proximity fuze. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

    Use of radio waves is a very common choice for proximity fuzes. The stand-off distance for fuzes varies between a lower and an upper limit depending on the electromagnetic reflectivity of terrain. The nose section of a proximity fuze is typically made out of plastic to enable the radio or other waves to pass through it. Figure 45 Proximity fuzes for large caliber shells.

Division of War Research, organizer. Radio Proximity (VT) Fuzes and How They Operate Proximity fuzes are intended to detonate missiles automatically upon approach to a target and at such a position along the flight path of the missile as to inflict maximum damage to the target.

Bureau staff at the end of World War II prepared the book titled Radio Proximity Fuzes for Fin-Stabilized Missiles, It summarized all the work done from about through It is a monograph; that is, a stand-alone comprehensive presentation of the entire program.

"Manuscript and illustrations for this volume were prepared for publication by the Summary Reports Group of the Columbia University.

The Radio Proximity Fuze - A survey. A move to develop countermeasures against proximity fuzes stemmed from the Germans, who during the "Battle of the Bulge," captured an Army munitions dump that contained a large number of the new radar proximity-fused shells.

Concerned that the Germans might attempt to copy the proximity fuze, the. The general principles governing the design of radio proximity fuzes are presented.

The paper deals primarily with fuzes for smooth-bore projectiles, such as bombs, rockets, and mortars. Abstract: The RAF's air exercises of highlighted the inability of Fighter Command's force of obsolete biplane fighters to intercept modern, fast, monoplane bombers. One tactic suggested to counter this deficiency was known as 'bombing the bomber'.

Both acoustic and photoelectric proximity fuzes were produced for this purpose and demonstrated before the outbreak of the Second World War.

wikipedia. Proximity fuzes cause a missile warhead or other munition (e.g. air-dropped bomb or sea mine) to detonate when it comes within a certain pre-set distance of the target, or vice versa.

Proximity fuzes utilize sensors incorporating one or more combinations of the following: radar, active sonar, passive acoustic, infrared, magnetic. A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value.

Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea, and ground forces. They provide a more sophisticated trigger mechanism than the common contact fuze or timed fuze. A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value.

Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea, and ground forces. They provide a more sophisticated trigger mechanism than the common contact fuze or timed fuze. It is estimated that it increases the lethality.

Ordnance Pamphlet (1st Rev.) describes U. Navy Radio Proximity (VT) fuzes for projectiles and spin-stabilized rockets, their operation, and characteristics and contains pertinent information on.

A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value. Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea and ground forces.

They provide a more sophisticated trigger mechanism than the common contact fuze or timed fuze. British military researchers Sir Samuel Curran.

A proximity fuze is a fuze that is designed to detonate an explosive device automatically when the distance to target becomes smaller than a predetermined value or when the target passes through a given plane.

The proximity fuze should not be confused with the common contact fuze. One of the first practical proximity fuzes was codenamed the VT fuze, an acronym of “Variable Time fuze”, as.

Missile electronics: Thales is Europe's leading supplier of electronic subsystems for missiles and precision-guided munitions, and provides equipment and services to customers throughout the world.

The company's core competencies cover design, development and production of high-performance seekers and proximity fuzes. The results of an operational evaluation of Radio Set AN/TRT- 2B were published in USAEPG-SIGSeptember Under optimum conditions the set predetonated 90 percent of TE2/A and T/A VT fuzes at a range of 2, yards.

However, when the jamming aspect was varied, that effective range was not consistently maintained. Proximity fuzes for these applications may function as radio or electro-optical altimeters or as slant-range-sensing devices that measure range to the surface at the projected point of weapon impact.

One means of signal selection makes use of the radar principle, in which the elapsed time between a transmitted and received pulse is a function. Here is a tome entitled "Radio Proximity Fuzes for Fin-Stabilized Missiles," printed inthat contains references to Dr.
