The design of fuze in this research use the methodology and procedures indicated in MIL-STD-1316D which determined the safety qualifications need to be considered when designing fuze. This design incorporates both mechanical and electrical mechanisms for target perception, conditions and command responses that are pre-determined for safe and accurate detonation of the fuze. Also, patents are studied as guidelines for designing and developing of the fuze to further enhanced safety and potential of the fuze. This research article is a report of the design and simulation of Electri-mechanic fuze to use as a foundation for further studies in the future.
