Enhanced nuclear detonation safety : Isolating nuclear weapon components essential to weapon detonation from significant electrical energy. This involves the enclosure of detonation-critical components in a barrier to prevent unintended energy sources from powering or operating the weapon’s functions. Penetrations through this barrier are the "strong links" of the weak link-strong link safeguard technology; fail-safe response of components inside it to abnormal events are the "weak links"
