The Safety and Arming Unit (SAU) is one of the key components of any ammunition.This component triggers the warhead underoptimal conditions and guarantees the safety level of the ammunition during its complete life cycle. It is also used for the ignition of rockets motors.

 

The Pyro-MEMS® technology developed by Nexter Munitions while enhancing the safety, reliability and functionalities of the SAU’s aims ata significant miniaturisation level. This technology intends to replace obsolescent SAU technologies (clock mechanisms).

 

Thanks to its level of miniaturisation and the expected cost benefits, the Pyro-MEMS® are compatible with micro generic and multipurpose SAU’s which shall cover a large range of applications.

R&D

MEMS SAU
Mainly dedicated to mass produced ammunition (from medium to large calibres).

ESAD MEMS (Electrical Safety and Arming Devices)
Mainly dedicated to advanced warheads (focused terminal effects, scalable and programmable
warheads), SAU’s and pyromechanisms for applications such as:
• missiles
• bombs
• torpedoes
• aeronautics and space applications
