Pigstick Lightweight Disrupter
The popular Pigstick Lightweight disrupter is well proven in the disruption of thin-walled Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), having been successfully deployed by the UK MoD for years.
Specifically designed for suspect devices larger and better protected than letter and small parcel bombs, the Pigstick Lightweight disrupter is able to successfully penetrate vehicle body panels.
The Pigstick has been in active service for over 30 years with many bomb disposal teams worldwide and has proven to be an extremely reliable method of disruption.
The Pigstick Lightweight disrupter is a multi-shot device capable of many firings and requires minimal maintenance.
Training may be carried out using the equipment without detriment to its service performance.
Pigstick Lightweight may be deployed using the supplied anti-roll clamp, an optional lightweight or telescopic stand or by mounting to a Remotely Controlled Vehicle (RCV).
Preparation of the disrupter is straightforward and quick to achieve and may be carried out remotely from the target to enhance operator safety.
The Pigstick Lightweight is constructed from non corroding titanium parts.
Prior to release each equipment is subjected to an over pressure test and flaw detection.
The Pigstick Lightweight can be supplied with the ABP Disruptor Parachute Retarding System (D-PRS) designed to slow and reduce the distances after deployment.
