MJU-23/B Infrared Decoy Flare

The MJU-23 is a cylindrical flare used in small quantities on the B-l aircraft. It is 10.5 inches long and 2.75 inches in diameter. It includes the same complex safety and initiation device as the non-parasitic version of the MJU-7/B. It has an aluminum end cap with 0.5 inches of black rubber potting compound designed to absorb the shock of hitting spring-loaded doors on the aircraft. It also uses an aluminum piston and includes strips of felt spacers on the side and circular felt spacers in the cylinder. The design is being simplified to reduce the relatively large quantity of debris. The MJU-23 uses the BBU-46/B impulse cartridge.
