Today’s battlefield is ever-changing in terms of weaponry demands and engagement criteria. Demands for additional capabilities of current ordnance are constantly growing. An easy yet cheap and effective way to increase existing and also add additional capabilities of current ordnance is by introducing a smart fuze that incorporates electronic components. In this report, a smart fuze software algorithm is created that is customizable, gathers and analyzes data from different sensors and provides different fuze functions. Introducing, as well as, upgrading existing fuze functions making them precise and accurate.
