1. A set of at least three modules connectable to form a system for sequentially activating payloads, said set comprising:

  • first, second and third modules, each said module being associated with a respective payload, and being housed in a respective single enclosure, each module comprising a first type connector and a second type connector, all of said first type connectors being identical to one another, all of said second type connectors being identical to one another, and each of said first type connectors being configured to mate with any one of said second type connectors; and

    each of said modules further comprises a control port for controlling an associated payload,wherein said second connector of said first module is connectable to said first connector of said second module and said second connector of said second module is connectable to said first connector of said third module to form a system; and

    further wherein each module in the system is operative to;

    receive a first signal at said first type connector;

    control the associated payload based on the first signal;
