Project Description
The Gillette Firing Device ™ (GFD™) is a rugged, compact firing device for reliably initiating explosives with shock tube. The design features interchangeable adapter heads that allow a single device to fire multiple non-electric shocktube ( Nonel ® ) firing line configurations. For open-end shock tube applications the Gillette Firing Device ™ uses low-cost standard #209 shotgun primers. For primed assemblies the device is compatible with all 7/16 threaded initiators and the Mk 154 assembly. This starter device represents a vast improvement over the standard Mk 54 Mod 0, Mk 54 Mod 1 firing device and other firing devices based on pen flare launchers and center punches.
