The second set of so-called ‘Battleship’ tests of the Vega igniters were carried out at the NAMMO explosives test range in the far north of Norway on 15 September.
The ‘Battleship’ test is an ambient atmosphere test where the complete igniter is fired. The object of the test is to verify in safe conditions the correct functioning of the complete igniter and its ignition chain, as well as to measure and verify the most important functional parameters, like pressure curve inside the igniter case, the gas flow ejected from the exit nozzles, the nozzles erosion, etc.
