The ABL 2000 is a “General Purpose” Recoilless Disruptor designed to render safe iED’s found in containers such as a briefcases or similar sized packages.

ABL 2000 has been subject to a series of formal tests against representative targets, sensitive explosives and pressure measuring systems ensuring reliable and consistent disruptive performance with complete recoilless operation ensuring minimum collateral damage and maximum operator safety.

Recent developments provide ABL 2000 with enhanced capabilities. With a simple substitution of the front barrel assembly and use of the correct projectile, ABL 2000 is now able to operate as a Stand Back Attack (SBA) disruptor or a De-Armer capable of fi ring a range of solid projectiles such as Chisels, Slugs and Forks.

The simple changeover of the front barrel assembly provides existing equipment users with a cost effective route to enhanced capability. Other enhancements are available such as laser aiming systems for operation in SBA mode and easy fi ll sachets of SBA projectile fluid.

The ABL 2000 Disruptor 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. Construction is from corrosion resistant stainless steel and aluminium parts manufactured in accordance with ABP’s ISO 9001 quality approval system. Prior to release each equipment is subjected to an overpressure proof test and flaw detection.

The ABL 2000 is operated by a bespoke cartridge. Each batch of cartridges are ballistically tested to ensure correct and consistent performance. The cartridges are supplied in multiples of 18 packaged within an M2A1 container complete with all internal furniture and all required consumable parts.
