As part of ABP’s commitment to design and innovation in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) range, we have developed a range of lightweight Disruptor products. This article provides an introduction into the ABL3000 Lightweight Recoilless Disruptor and De-armer.
The ABL3000 Lightweight Recoilless Disruptor is one of the largest disruptors in the ABP range, only trumped by the ABL4000. The unit is made from titanium to reduce overall weight and to give ROVs which normally couldn’t carry this size disruptor the capability.
It is a multi-shot device, capable of many firings and requiring minimal maintenance. The recoilless capability of the disruptor minimises backlash on the mount, extending longevity to the operating platform. Training can be carried out on this disruptor without causing any detriment to its service performance.
ABP takes quality and safety very seriously and so all disruptors are subject to a 100% testing against representative targets, sensitive explosives, and pressure measuring systems. This ensures reliable and consistent performance when in the field, giving minimum collateral damage, and maximum operator safety.
This disruptor can be supplied with additional facilities to provide enhanced capabilities. With a simple substitution of the front barrel assembly and use of the correct projectile, the ABL3000 Lightweight is able to operate as a de-armer, capable of firing a range of solid projectiles such as chisels, slugs and forks.
