PROXIMITY SWITCHES

6/12/2021  

In the beginning of WW2, aircraft became a major player as a weapon in the war. They flew faster and higher than the planes of WW1 and could carry much more lethal weaponry on its back. This created a defense weapon known as an anti-aircraft gun which had horrible accuracy statistics. One estimate was that for every 1,000 shells fired, only 1 plane was knocked down. Annie Oakleys, they were not. As England became an aerial target early in the war, engineers began a frantic search for increasing the accuracy of anti-aircraft weapons. Initially utilizing variable timers and altitude switches, a skilled gunnery team increased its kill ratio to 1 plane per 500 rounds. Unsatisfactory. The breakthrough was the invention of a proximity switch that greatly increased the effectiveness. Using a small radio transmitter with hardened electronics to take the shock of a trip up the barrel, it soon received returning waves bouncing off a relatively close object. The Fuze closed and ignited the explosives in a hardened casing that sent deadly shrapnel off in all directions. The kill ratio expanded with reliability. However, in war, turnabout is fair play so aircraft launched proximity switched rockets at anti-aircraft batteries, shredding the men and machineries at these installations. The inventors of these devices are humans and also contain a hidden, built-in proximity switch. If you get within someone’s “space”, the switch sets off a neurological response that tells the perpetrator to back off from such encroachment. Courage and self-survival vie with each other as the internal proximity switch activates the cranium control to fight or flight status. After many years, scientists have located these devices in the human body. They are buried within the sex organs and can set off an explosive round of animalistic grunts and moans during a close-up wrestling match. The bursting secretions may trigger another destructive force upon the earth: fresh new human beings.
