Abrégé

In a multi-burst diversionary device (10) containing a number of pyrotechnic cartridges (22) arranged in a series and a firing arrangement (14), a first of the cartridges is ignited by the firing arrangement, the remaining cartridges are each ignited sequentially by the flash of pressure and heat (hot gasses) produced when a previous cartridge in the series deflagrates. The device has a housing (12) defining a number of compartments (20) in which the cartridges are received. The housing defines flow paths interconnecting the compartments in series and the first compartment with the firing arrangement. Each compartment is also fluidly connected with atmosphere.
