Although relatively small in their physical dimensions, initiators play a fundamental role in the safety, reliability and performance of all explosive systems. Several current initiation systems are introduced and future military requirements are discussed. Exploding foil initiators are currently the prime candidate for in-line initiator applications, while laser-driven flyers could extend this technology. The investigation of several novel high explosive materials for use in these systems will then be presented.
