At Omnitek Partners, LLC we design and produce novel inertial igniters that can satisfy practically all no-fire and all-fire requirements. All of our inertial igniters are fully tested using drop tests, centrifuge tests, and air gun tests to ensure that they fulfill safety, no-fire and all-fire requirements. Our highly developed and advanced computer modeling and analysis capabilities allow for the development of cost effective custom designed inertial igniters.

Inertial Igniters Uses & Design Features

  • Fully mechanical miniature inertial igniters can be integrated into small thermal batteries and similar applications.
  • Inertial igniters are ideal for low all-fire acceleration levels encountered in missiles.
  • Inertial igniters can be designed to operate with percussion primers or with different pyrotechnic materials.
  • Inertial igniters are designed to satisfy very high reliability requirements of up to 99.9 percent with 95 percent confidence level.
  • Inertial igniters can be designed to satisfy the strictest safety requirements.
