The ABL-1000 Recoilless disruptor/dearmer has been developed as a dual role equipment to defeat the threat posed by both IEDs and UXO.

When used as a Disruptor, the ABL-1000, equipped with the supplied disruption barrel, will project a high pressure water slug into the suspect device disrupting the firing circuit and providing a high probability of avoiding detonation.

When used as a de-Armer, fitted with the supplied de-armer barrel, it is able to fire a selection of steel slug chisels or forks to remove or neutralise the fuses of air dropped ordnance and some land service ammunition. In de-armer mode the ABL1000 may also be used to neutralise IEDs such as pipe bombs and other metal cased devices.

The ABL-1000 is completely recoilless in operation and as such ensures minimal collateral damage in operation and enhances the safety of the operator.

The disruptor/de-Armer is a multi-shot device capable of many firings and requires minimum maintenance. Training may be carried out using the equipment without detriment to its service performance.

ABL-1000 may be deployed manually by placing on a suitable surface such as a car seat or sandbag or mounted using the supplied lightweight stand.

Preparation of the disruptor is straightforward and quick to achieve and may be carried out remotely from the target to enhance operator safety.

The ABL-1000 is constructed from corrosion resistant materials. Prior to release each unit is subjected to overpressure and flaw detection tests.
