Authors: Mark R. Probst
Date/Pages: April 2010; 22 pages
Abstract: When a Magneto-Inductive Remote Activation Munition System (MI-RAMS) production contractor proposed an alternate tab spring design to avoid scrapping a large number of obsolete arming tabs, an endurance test plan was developed and conducted in order to qualify the alternate design. Successful testing resulted in reductions in cost and delivery impact.
