SDI is well known for their range of high-tech 40mm less-lethal munitions. SDI manufactures an impressive range of 40mm less-lethal munitions. The excellent SDI expanding, gel tipped, Blunt Impact Projectile (BIP) is used by several agencies throughout the world that demand cutting edge technology, effectiveness and safety. In addition to their impact munitions, SDI is also the only manufacturer in the world that currently manufactures a malodorant payload round that contains a highly noxious medium that delivers a terrible odor to enhance suspect compliance.

After relocating to the United States, Ross continued to consult and served as law enforcement/military sales associate for a well-known U.S. ammunition manufacturer. Recently, Ross acted as Director of Training and National Sales Manager for a less-lethal munitions company before being appointed by Security Devices International, Inc.

“SDI delivers where safety, innovation and technology are in demand by customers that require specialized designs. They have a highly capable and experienced team in place. All ready to serve. HTC is proud to be part of it.”
