  • Patent number: 4627351
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fuse for rotating projectiles having directive explosive force, whereby is meant that the projectile has effect in one direction only, which direction does not coincide with the length axis of the projectile, and substantially no effect in other directions. The fuse according to the invention comprises two sensors. A first sensor with a narrow sensitivity lobe in a direction not coinciding with the length direction of the projectile, suitably the same direction as the direction for maximal explosive force, produces a pulse signal each time its sensitivity lobe is directed towards a target, and a second sensor monitors the distance to the target. The pulse signal obtained from the first sensor is used to initiate burst at a moment when the direction for maximal explosive force coincides with the direction to the target, provided that the second sensor indicates that the projectile has entered a given distance zone from the target.
