Pluton™ is part of the Vulcan™ family of shaped charges and is the next size up from the Vulcan.

Pluton shares many common design features with the other size charges reducing the training burden presented by many different charges.

The Pluton is designed for many applications including high order and low order of UXO, including underwater and deliberate detonation of buried IEDs. The system includes a number of different projectiles – copper Jet Forming Cone (JFC), copper Explosively Formed Projectile (EFP), two variants of magnesium JFCs and a liquid projectile. There are also a number of stands, delivery systems and accessories to enhance the Pluton capability, deployment, and operational versatility.

The Pluton system is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal multi-role explosive tool for EOD Operations.  It has been used successfully by both NATO and non-NATO forces in several theatres of operations including underwater to successfully detonate or deflagrate sea mines and other maritime ordnance.
