18NovNovember 18, 2013by Isabella Meadenin NewsAt the Counter Terror Expo in April 2013, Alford Technologies launched a new explosive tool used for performing wire cutting tasks. Named the “FireBreak”, this new explosive tool is a low-cost, disposable, explosively-driven wire cutter used for cutting command wires. FireBreak is constructed of lightweight materials and is a one-shot disposable tool. It does not require specialist ammunition, unlike similar wire cutting products. The FireBreak severs command wires in a time and order of magnitude less than is required for actuation of the target munition’s detonator. This is critical to safety and successful disposal.
