DRDO Develops Device That Can Breach Door From 100 Meters
DRDO develops Door Breaching Device for security personnel

Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed Door Breaching Device that can be used from a distance of 100 metres for rapid entry.

Developed by DRDO’s Terminal Ballistic Research Laboratory (TBRL), the device is capable of breaching various kinds of doors like thick metal door and thick wooden doors by remote action, TBRL’s Chandigarh-based scientist Yogeshwar Nath, who was also part of the developers’ team was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle Tuesday.

Security personnel would soon get the device that assists them to break into a house and neutralize the armed terrorists.

“This device is ready for production and it is yet to be inducted into the security forces. We have conducted demonstration trials for Indian Army, DG Infantry, National Security Guards, CRPF, ITBP, SSB, CISF and Punjab police,” he said.

“Door-breaching is an important activity in low- intensity conflict operations as it provides rapid entry through the locked or barricades structures.” Security experts said.

In the present system, the flexible linear shape charge is being used. In this system, we have used exploding bridge wire detonator to initiate the charge assembly. The system uses a specially designed wireless firing system to provide required excitation power. Wireless trigger can initiate the firing unit remotely.

“There will be minimum collateral damage and there is no primary explosive involved in complete system,” said Mr Nath.
