AirBoss Defense Group Awarded First Commercial Sale of Bandolier Multi-Purpose Lightweight Clearing Charge System to the Netherlands DMO

Monday, April 20th, 2020

LANDOVER, MD (April 20, 2020) – AirBoss Defense Group (ADG) announced today that the Netherlands Defense Meteriel Organisation (DMO) has placed an initial order of 500 Bandolier Multipurpose Lightweight Explosive Clearing Charge Systems as part of a 5-year program to advance their demolitions capabilities. The contract also provides Bandolier training programs for DMO combat units. The Bandolier is a modern explosive charge designed to enhance soldier survivability and protection during combat operations, providing warfighters with a single, multifunctional device that can effectively clear any obstacle typically encountered on the battlefield in one lightweight, modular package.

The Netherlands is the first North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) country to purchase the Bandolier system. The contract vehicle provides the ability for all 30 NATO member countries to easily procure Bandolier systems and ADG expects additional NATO orders to follow. “The purchase of the Bandolier System marks a milestone event in the demolitions community,” explains Michael McCormack, ADG’s Chief Strategy Officer. “The adoption of this modern, lightweight, highly versatile system by a Tier 1 NATO military power is a major update from the decades old use of standard bulk explosives (C-4) and other purpose-built explosive solutions. This integration will give the Dutch warfighter a significant edge on the battlefield.”

The Bandolier’s patented design bridges the capability gap between larger, complicated breaching charges and standard bulk demolitions. Its unique modular design is light enough for dismounted operations, while remaining flexible enough to meet larger-scale mission requirements. NATO forces can now be supplied with a single, lightweight, easy to use explosive system, capable of performing a wide range of tasks, eliminating the need for multiple mission-specific systems.

Royal Marines Assault Engineers Conduct Sabotage And Denial Training In Norway

Thursday, February 27th, 2020

The Royal Marines are in the process of reshaping themselves as the “Future Commando Force” which looks an awful lot like becoming what they were in the 1970s and 80s, a light force of raiders from the sea.

45 Commando’s Assault Engineers conducted advanced demolition training in Norway at a facility which includes Norway’s state-of-the-art facilities that includes a train and 150ft ship. With an eye toward urban operations, they also conducted CQB training.

“We provide close combat engineering support to 45 Commando’s fighting companies and provide the ability to speedily conduct sabotage and denial of enemy assets (weapon systems, equipment, vehicles and vessels), infrastructure and routes,” said Colour Sergeant Ryan Selbie, of 45 Commando.

“Combat Assault Breachers operating within the Future Commando Force will be a key enabler to mission success.

“As the corps’ method of entry, demolition (sabotage and denial) and counter-explosive ordnance specialists, we bring a unique and invaluable skills set to the FCF small-team construct.

DSEI 2019: SAN Ltd Presents Its Unique Electro Hydraulic Tactical Breaching Kit

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

The easy-to-carry, lightweight and fast breakthrough kit has been designed for military and para-military special forces, and is currently being used in over 25 countries around the world

DSEI 2019, September 10-13, London, Israel Pavilion, South Hall, Stand no S5-220

3 September 2019. SAN Ltd. – Designs and manufactures heavy and light equipment for the defense and commercial markets around the world, will present its unique Tactical Breaching Kit in use by special forces, law enforcement units, and search & rescue teams, at DSEI 2019.

Weighing only 3-4 kg when in use by hand, the lightweight kit is powered by two batteries, each one able to power up to 25 breaching operations, totaling up to 50 breaches between charges. The use of a hydraulic method instead of explosives or mechanical tools, makes the system quiet and easy to operate, enabling forces to maintain the element of surprise in cases where the breach is required in order to locate and neutralize hostile forces. The kit is also safe for both the user and anything or anyone on the other side of the door, which is curial in hostage and rescue situations.

“As most of our team were breachers during their service, when we developed the Tactical Breaching Kit, our goal was to create the ideal breaching solution,” says Ran Nakash, CEO of SAN Ltd. “We invested considerable resources in developing a system that is based on our operational knowledge in the hydraulics field. This resulted in the best possible product for today’s operating forces and is currently being used throughout the world.”

The Tactical Breaching Kit can be equipped with a door breaker, spreader, long spreader, cutter, guillotine, cable cutter, jimmy bar, cylinder opener, wire cutter and a magnet.

Liberty Dynamic – Enhanced Diversionary Device

Friday, February 15th, 2019

One of the coolest things at SHOT Show was something I didn’t even get to see because I attended several private Range days and it was exhibited by Liberty Dynamic at the Official Industry Range Day. The Enhanced Diversionary Device is much more than a “Stun Grenade,” it is actually a reloadable, digitally fused fuel air explosive device.

Little work has been done over the years to modernize Noise and Flash Diversionary Devices. Traditional devices are flammable and produce smoke as well as secondary frag from loose items being propelled during detonation. Over a decade ago, Sandia National Lab produced a developmental fuel air device, but it was never commercialized.


Liberty Dynamic was co-founded by former Recon Marine John Chapman.

Liberty Dynamic developed their own technology, the Enhanced Diversionary Device, a digital fuse FAE device which produces a thermobaric event using a binary energetic material. This means that it is not BATFE controlled. Update: Liberty Dynamic updated us with a clarification regarding BATFE oversight of the EDD. The energetic is not regulated in its binary form. However, once it is combined and attached to a fuse, it is, in fact, regulated.

Cartridges are reloadable. The combustible aluminum is atomized in free space, outside of the device, creating a dust cloud which when ignited produces a report of 175 dB and 9 million candela. However, unlike the output cap on current tech, the Enhanced Diversionary Device offers scalable output. As they increase the FAE event, it produces a more potent dB output.

Due to the combustion outside of the device, it remains cool and intact, ready to be reloaded.

The Smart Fuse enables a precise customizable detonation sequence. However, it is set at the factory, based upon user TTPs. Thanks to this digital fuse technology, you’ll get at least a hundred uses from the device. Additionally, tri-color LEDs indicate device condition. Finally, any deployment failure and the device renders safe in 60 seconds.

In addition to offering training systems, the Enhanced Diversionary Device can be configured for deployment from a sUAS.
