M762A1 electronic time fuze L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems in Cincinnati, OH received a $24.1 million firm-fixed-price contract to supply M762A1 electronic time fuzes [pdf]. The fuze is used on all 105mm and 155mm artillery-delivered cargo, smoke, and illumination projectiles. It can be set manually by the user or automatically by an inductive fuze setter… M762A1 fuze along with the M767A1 [pdf] fuze are intended to be an improvement over the US Army’s primary artillery fuzes, the baseline M762/M767 electronic time fuze and the M577/M582 series mechanical time super quick fuze, by increasing rates of fire and reducing system response time. The M762A1 and M767A1 are nose-mounted fuzes that provide precision timed airburst and impact detonation capabilities. The M762A1 is only used with cargo carrying projectiles, while the M767A1, with a booster assembly attached to its base end, is only used with high explosive fragmentation and bursting projectiles. L-3 will perform the work in Cincinnati, OH with an estimated completion date of Sept 30/13. Bids were solicited on the web with 1 bid received by the US Army Contracting Command, Joint Munitions & Lethality Contracting Center, CCJM-CA, at the Picattinny Arsenal, NJ (W15QKN-09-C-0050).
