Title: Explosive assembly and method

Abstract

An explosive assembly includes a first explosive unit having a first longitudinal end portion having a first mechanical coupling feature, a second explosive unit having a second longitudinal end portion having a second mechanical coupling feature, and a tubular connector having a first end portion mechanically coupled to the first mechanical coupling feature and a second end portion mechanically coupled to the second mechanical coupling feature, such that the first explosive unit, the connector, and the second explosive unit are connected together end-to-end along a common longitudinal axis. Each explosive unit can contain a high explosive material and a detonator, and the connector can comprise a detonation control module electrically coupled to the detonators and configured to detonate the explosive units.
