The separation function was specifically designed to minimize pyrotechnic shock. The ferrule assembly is in two parts with carbon strips located over the entire inner circumference of the ferrule. All along this circumference, it runs a metal tube, which is sealed. Facing each carbon strip, it is installed knives. Upon activation of the order: a pyrotechnic gas generator swells the entire metal tube. This expansion is directly after the knife actuating throughout the circumference in question. By simple translation, these knives are instantly cut each strip of carbon.
Separation will achieve a very low impact.
This is a pollution-free particle solution that could hinder some sensitive equipment such as optical equipment.
The activation or control is through pyrotechnic actuators recognized in the spatial domain as one of the most reliable energy.
