Proximity Fuzing

Excelitas offers a broad range of pulsed lasers and detectors for proximity fuzes. We offer both standard off-the-shelf and customer-specific designs to meet your exacting specifications.

A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value. Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea, and ground forces. They provide a more sophisticated trigger mechanism than the common contact fuze or timed fuze. It is estimated that it increases the lethality by 5 to 10 times, compared to these other fuzes.

Excelitas offers products that enable the design of proximity fuzes, including:

  • Si PIN and APD modules
  • Pulsed laser diodes
