ResheFuze RT180-1

Artilley Electronic Proximity Fuze

The RT180-1 is a safe, accurate and cost-effective time gated
by inductive setting, Artillery Proximity Fuze. Designed to
initiate artillery ammunition at the optimum height of burst
for maximum effectiveness. The RT180-1 fuze operates in
all weather conditions and is highly immune to atmospheric
conditions and Electronics Counter-Measures (ECM).

MILITARY STANDARDS

MIL-STD-333: Environmental and performance tests for fuze and fuze components. MIL-STD-331: Fuze, projectile and accessory contours. MIL-STD-1316: Fuze design, safety criteria. STANAG 4187: Fuzing system - safety design requirements.

HEIGHT OF BURST

PRX Mode (factory set). Average of 9.0 meters above target. Other heights of burst upon request.

IMMUNITY

The fuze utilizes an electronic timer (3 to 199.5 seconds) which start transmission at 2.8 seconds before the set time. The fuze will not be activated by clouds, thunder or sand storms. The fuze is immune to Electronic Counter Measures (ECM).
