Abstract
A solicitation has requested a feasibility study on the topic of enhanced capabilities for the SD-IED disrupter tool, used for neutralization of IED"s and other explosive devices. Specifically, the solicitation requests investigation of designs for electrically-initiated semiautomatic disrupter devices with greatly-reduced recoil transfer for EOD robotic platforms. The new design must maintain compatibility with standard SD-IED ammunition, performing mechanical ignition of the percussive primer with a high-reliability safety system. Finally, the design must be lightweight.
