ResheFuze RT180

Artilley Electronic Proximity Fuze

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

COMPATIBILITY

To be used with all types of HE artillery projectiles with calibers of: 105mm - 155mm howitzers and guns.

OPERATION MODES

Proximity (PRX): Detonates projectiles at optimal height above target. Point Detonation (PD): Detonates projectiles upon impact with target.

TIME DELAY SETTING

Electronic time setting perform manually by self lock ring. Start transmission in PRX mode and for PD mode: • For PD Mode: Set to PD mode. • For PRX Mode: Set from 5 to 155 seconds with increments of 5 seconds.

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 9.0m above target. Other heights of burst upon request.

IMMUNITY

The fuze utilizes an electronic timer (5 to 155 seconds) starts transmission 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).
