R&DE(E) has a state-of-the-art UV-LIGA based Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) fabrication and characterization facility. The establishment has also undertaken the task of designing and realising several devices such as Safety and Arming Fuse for Pinaka and accelerometers for Structural-Health-Monitoring applications. Several MEMS components for Fuse Safety and Arming mechanism such as permanent G-switch, floating G-switch, and miniature explosive switch have been realised.
