Abstract

See full text

An improved cable cutting system for an exercise mine or other underwater payload is provided. The system utilizes a pro-pressurized gas cartridge as the source of compressed gas to operate a cable cutter and anti-scouring system. A firing pulse initiates a bottle-punch actuator positioned in a manifold. The actuator punctures the sealed nipple of the gas cartridge. The released gas is directed through the manifold and injected directly into a cylinder that drives a piston. The piston is connected to a chisel that is driven forward to cut the cable. The released gas can also activate the anti-scouring system or, alternatively, additional cartridges/punches may be used for the anti-scoring system.
