Energetics specialises in the fields of pyrotechnics, energetic materials and explosives, the company has developed a 40-mm armour-piercing grenade technology in partnership with Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) and Ploughshare Innovation.

Today at the show, ETL received an award for the development of this innovation from DSTL at Lacroix’s stand.   

The new 40-mm grenade developed by ETL, utilises UK government developed breaching technology which has been licensed to ETL and Ploughshare Innovations, in an agreement that will improve operations of the Explosive Entry Method (EMOE) and operator safety.

The stand-off breaching grenade is designed for use by special operations teams and counter-terrorism units in scenarios where it is necessary to break through locked doors to gain access to a building or room.
