From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Unarmed \Un*armed"\, a. [Pref. un- not + armed.]
   1. Not armed or armored; having no arms or weapons.
      [1913 Webster]

   2. (Nat. Hist.) Having no hard and sharp projections, as
      spines, prickles, spurs, claws, etc.
      [1913 Webster]

   3. Not in a state in which it may be detonated; unable to be
      detonated; -- used of nuclear and certain other explosive
      devices, which, as a safety precaution, are stored and
      transported in a state in which normal triggering
      mechanisms will not function to cause the device to
      detonate. The weapon must first be armed by a separate
      action, and only subsequent to such arming will the weapon
      be able to detonate.
