An occupant passive restraint system for an automotive vehicle comprises an air bag and a pulsed pressure source in fluid flow relation with the air bag. The pulsed pressure source includes plural pulsed pressure sources sequentially energized in response to the deceleration sensor sensing a single crash impact. Each source includes plural chambers holding progressively larger masses of gas generant. The chambers are arranged so that each has an outlet coupled with the chamber having the next largest gas generant mass. The gas generant mass in each chamb...
1. A pulsed pressure source comprising plural chambers holding progressively larger masses of gas generants, said chambers being arranged so that each has an outlet coupled in fluid flow relation with the chamber having the next largest gas generant mass, the gas generant in each chamber being predominantly a non-explosive solid particulate material, the smallest chamber including a metal element in contact with the generant therein and selectively connected to an electric source, the electric source supplying a pulse having sufficient energy and duratio...
