This training film demonstrates hazards involved when missile explosive devices are mishandled. Explains the nature and purpose of fuses, squibs, igniters and initiators. Outlines safety procedures for handling, installing and testing such devices. Includes footage of malfuntioning rockets and missiles. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
