An electronic safe and arm device for generating a trigger signal for initiating detonation of a flying plate detonator. A toroidal trigger capacitor surrounds the electronics of the device and will be shorted to disable the safe and arm device if damage occurs thereto. First and second sensor switches responsive to selected flight parameters control the charging of the trigger capacitor. A normally closed arm enable switch prevents the charging of the trigger capacitor until after break-wire launch has occurred.
