Title: Series II tests of B77 component section

Abstract

The electrical firing system components in the B77 full fuzing option (FUFO) bomb that must survive the laydown environment are located in the midcase section of the bomb and are housed in a component can which is protected by a thick layer of Kerimid 601 foam. A series of half-scale tests designed to evaluate the effect of density variations in the foam and to determine maximum acceptable lateral impact velocities on hard, irregular targets are described. The test series was never completed; the report summarizes the tests that were completed and gives limited conclusions based upon the data available.
