In (November 1946 the Czechoslovak Arsy Teolntical Institute (M 9o5ensky Technick, Uatav) in Pod wkly (Zlectophyaios Depsrtrent) received two units of the tuoximity fuse fron GerrarW. One projectile had a reen and the other a pink point. The fuses more disaesss bled in the laboratory and, their parts carted. The firm Tenla in Prague was giiien the task of duplicatia the fuses. It in believed that the firm Daimon got the order to raw.itaeture a short-tfr.-e battery. So far, this order has not been carried out, hoverer. 2. The nroxinity fuse, so far, has been constructed only in the laboratory. German riniature tubes rade during the war, Arsrioaq tubes, and tubes sup- plied by Teala were us, 3d in the rr6cevs. The laboratory testes wore not suo- ceesful, since the sensitiveness of the American-made proximity flies was not reached. The greatest difficulty as caused by the short-tines battery. 3. Research uork tats carried out by Ing. Tiandrick, a German specialist, who is in charge of the laboratory.
