Arming / Firing Initiator

Cutting assemblies are mounted in the pilot and gunner doors and window frames. The linear explosive is contained with the cutting assemblies. The cutting assemblies are controlled by the pilot or gunner arming/firing mechanisms. Rotating the arming/firing mechanism handle 90 degrees counterclockwise (torque required 6 to 12 inch-pounds) will arm the cutting assemblies. Pulling the handle (20 to 35 pounds tension) will fire the percussion primer causing the cutting assemblies to be detonated. The explosive force will be outward and remove two windows and two doors from the helicopter simultaneously.
