APOBS

APOBS is a self-contained, one-shot, expendable linear demolition charge. It is capable of safely clearing a path of 45 m in length by 0.6–2 m in width through many obstacles, such as anti-personnel mines, IEDs, pressure plates and multi-strand razor wires. This lightweight system can be carried easily by a 2-person team, weighing just 56 kg, and can be deployed in under 2 minutes. APOBS meets the Insensitive Munition (IM) standards as defined in MIL-STD-2105 and also the fuze board safety requirements of MIL-STD-1316. It also meets the Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) requirements.

Additional information

APOBS can either be employed with either “Delay Mode” or “Command Mode” initiation of the tractor rocket motor. Line charge detonation occurs approximately 10 seconds after launch. APOBS meets the Insensitive Munition (IM) safety and hazard standards defined in MIL-STD-2105 and also meets the fuze board safety requirements of MIL-STD-1316. The Forward and Alt Fuze provide safety redundancy. The system meets Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) requirements by using no electrically initiated devices. The environmentally sealed shipping and storage container and backpacks ensures a long shelf life.
