Abstract: Failure is one key problem of MEMS S&A (safety and arming) device for its practical application. To make research of failure of MEMS S&A device in action process, a method based on FTA was employed to make analysis on arming process of the set-back arming mechanism of typical MEMS S&A device. Result obtained with theory computation was verified to be right by simulation analysis and which could prove rationally of the method. Conclusion of the article could provide theory reference for structure designing and optimization of MEMS S&A device.


Keywords: MEMS S&A device, Set-back arming mechanism, FTA (failure tree analysis), Failure analysis.
