1. A remote digital firing system for firing of a remote mission payload, comprising:

  • a firing circuit communicatively coupled to and operative to fire the remote mission payload;

    a firing control panel communicatively linked to said firing circuit; and

    a digital code plug configured to be integrated in communicative combination with said firing circuit and said firing control panel;

    wherein said firing circuit is operative, with said digital code plug integrated in communicative combination therewith, to generate and write one-time random session variables to said digital code plug and to simultaneously store said one-time random session variables internally in said firing circuit;

    wherein said firing control panel is operative, with said digital code plug integrated in communicative combination therewith, to generate and transmit messages having said one-time random session variables embodied therein to said firing circuit; and

    wherein said firing circuit validates said messages by comparing said one-time random session variables embodied in said messages with said internally stored one-time random session variables prior to firing the remote mission payload.
