Aircraft pyrotechnics

Dassault Aviation has used its pyrotechnics expertise to ensure crew safety. Using dedicated components, the company develops ejection seat ignition systems, interseat sequencing systems for twin-seat airplanes, and canopy break-away and cutting systems.

Concerning the external loads separation, Dassault Aviation had developed a new generation of cartridge. That equipment, adapted to all recent aircraft ejector types used by the French Air Force, needs a low level maintenance. In addition, it is compatible with high electromagnetic ambiances.

Finally, Dassault Aviation also developed, for Rafale fighters, an ejector adapted to the new generation of missiles.
