Impulse Cartridges are highly reliable pressure cartridges for users requiring a consistent output for their countermeasure, external stores release or other type applications. Our cartridges are designed to meet critical elements for counter measures such as precise exit velocities to ensure a chaff or flare is able to ‘distract’ an incoming threat from an actual aircraft. The amount of powder is critical to ensure consistent performance from cartridge to cartridge. We maintain all powder weight to ± milligrams. For stores release, especially in an emergency, time is of the most importance and initiation first time every time is paramount. Our cartridges reach within milliseconds to the initiation signal with an output sized to ensure release of the external item (i.e. fuel tank, load winch hook, cable cutter, etc.)
The bridgewire welding and final closure is performed to exacting tolerances. These superior statistical process controlled (SPC) manufacturing procedures assure the user of reliable and consistent performance far exceeding existing specification requirements. Performance parameters assure consistent and reliable flare ejection in the field. The low variances in performance measurements are a result of SPC manufacturing and tight control materials quality.
