The ABL 1000 Recoilless Disruptor De-Armer has been developed as a dual role equipment to defeat the threat posed by both Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and unexploded Ordnance (UXO).

When used as a Disruptor the ABL 1000 equipped with the supplied disruption barrel the equipment 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 and fitted with the supplied De-Armer barrel it is able to fire a selection of steel slugs chisels or forks to remove or neutralise the fuzes of air dropped ordnance and some land service ammunition. In De-Armer mode ABL 1000 may also be used to neutralise IEDs such as pipe bombs and other metal cased devices.

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

The ABL 1000 Disruptor is a multi-shot device capable of 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 or by mounting on a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) such as ABP’s Cyclops or Guardian.

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

ABL 1000 is constructed from corrosion resistant materials manufactured in accordance with ABP’s ISO-9001 quality approval system. Prior to release each equipment is many firings and requires minimum maintenance. Training subjected to an over pressure proof test and flaw detection.

The ABL 1000 is operated by a 0.5 cartridge. Each batch of cartridges are ballistically tested to ensure correct and consistent performance. The cartridges are supplied in multiples of 77 packaged within an M2A1 container complete with all internal furniture and all required consumable parts.
