Separation systems for launchers

Separation systems enable to break linear or circular metallic structure.

Separation systems enable to break linear or circular metallic structure (between two stages, for example). They use rigid hermetic expansible tubes.

Initiation is performed through 8LTSH type transmission lines or 1DPWH30 type detonators.
