THE AUSTRALIAN COMPRESSION IGNITION (CI) FUZE: A HISTORY
OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AND SUGGESTIONS FOR
USE IN FUZES FOR PRACTICE AMMUNITION

ABSTRACT


The development of the CI fuze from conception in the mid 1940's
through to the final F7 (MRL) and XF8 (EDE) models of the late 1960's is
described. Experimental data from this period relevant to recommencing an
experimental programme directed towards use of a CI fuze in practice
ammunition is detailed. Technical problems of the F7/F2 Fuze have been
identified, and research programmes to overcome these have been specified.
Some options which would lead to a more cost effective fuze have been
presented as concepts.
