Abstract

The Intelligence Community and recent trend analysis suggests that future terrorism will expand the use of IED, VBIED s and Person Borne Suicide Vests. Current Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technology uses Single Shot Disruptors for disarming these threats whenever possible. Recent development has mounted these Disruptors onto the Man Transportable Robot System (MTRS). These Disruptors are Single Shot, and tax the weight limit of the MTRS. The Joint Service EOD community has identified the need for a multi-shot Disruptor that is light weight and can be mounted on the MTRS. This Engineering Analysis will address the technical challenges of meeting this need for an EOD Multi-Shot (up to 4 rds.) Disruptor that is light enough to be mounted on the MTRS. In addition, recoil mitigation will be evaluated to ensure no physical damage to the MTRS occurs during repeated firings.
