Recoilless Disruptors and De-Armers

At ABP, we know that our customers frequently put themselves into high risk situations and must be able to rely on the equipment we supply – a responsibility we take extremely seriously.  

Below see the 3 Recoilless Disruptors and De-Armers to find out more about our proven expertise in this area. 

ABL1000 Recoilless Disruptor and De-Armer

ABL1000 Recoilless Disruptor and De-Armer 

 
Currently in service with the UK MoD and worldwide security agencies, the ABL1000 is a dual role Recoilless Disruptor and De-Armer system developed to combat the threat posed by complex and well protected Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and Unexploded Ordnances (UXOs). 

Product Capabilities 

  • Manual multi-shot device capable of thousands of firings without affecting performance 
  • Disruption barrel enables projection of high pressure water slug into the suspect device, rapidly disrupting the firing circuit and avoiding detonation 
  • De-Armer barrel enables rapid firing of a selection of steel slugs, chisels or forks to remove or neutralise the fuses of ordnances including air-dropped bombs and land service munitions 
  • Neutralises IEDs including pipe bombs and metal cased devices 
  • Recoilless operation maximises operator safety and prevents collateral damage 
  • Can be deployed by placing on an appropriate surface such as a car seat or sandbag, mounted in a supplied lightweight stand or on a Remotely Operated Vehicle for enhanced operator flexibility 
  • Requires minimal training and maintenance 

Product Specifications 

  • Constructed from precision-manufactured corrosion resistant materials developed in accordance with ABP’s IS09001 quality approval system 
  • Flaw detected and proofed during manufacture 
  • Supplied as a complete kit housed in a robust, shock-resistant container 
  • Disruptor mode length: 515mm, weight: 4.5kg 
  • De-Armer mode length: 284mm, weight: 3.5kg

ABL2000 Recoilless Disruptor and De-Armer

ABL2000 Recoilless Disruptor and De-Armer 

 
The ABL2000 Recoilless Disruptor has been developed to offer highly effective disruption performance combined with completely recoilless operation. It is typically used to defeat devices packaged in parcels, boxes, briefcases etc. 

 
In contrast to many other competing equipment, ABL2000 has been carefully devised to ensure that its operation provides optimal disruptive effect while minimising the chance of initiating the explosive content of the suspect device. This unique ability has been developed through a series of formal tests against representative targets, sensitive explosives and pressure measuring systems.

Additionally, ABL2000 has been carefully designed to be simple to operate – consisting of only 5 parts which can be assembled quickly and easily even in adverse conditions. Careful consideration has been given to features such as thread pitches and finishes to minimise difficulties with assembly in dirty and sandy environments. The supplied ABL2000 cleaning kit ensures ease of cleaning after use, enabling contamination to be quickly and effectively removed. 

Product Capabilities 

  • Manual multi-shot device capable of thousands of firings without impacting performance 
  • Light, robust and easy to operate 
  • Recoilless operation maximises operator safety and prevents collateral damage 
  • Can be operated with a small Remotely Operated Vehicle such as Cyclops (link) 
  • Requires minimal training and maintenance

Product Specifications 

  • Constructed from precision-manufactured corrosion resistant materials developed in accordance with ABP’s IS09001 quality approval system 
  • Flaw detected and proofed during manufacture 
  • Supplied as a complete kit housed in a robust, shock-resistant container or in a holdall style container.
