Chemring Ordnance awarded APOBS contract option

11th October 2013 - 16:05 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has awarded Chemring Ordnance a contract modification for its Anti-Personnel Obstacle Breaching System (APOBS). The $15.4 million modification brings the total contract value to over $125 million.

APOBS provides soldiers the capability to safely clear a footpath through anti-personnel mines and multi-strand wire obstacles with a one-shot, expendable linear demolition charge. The self-contained system can be transported and deployed by a two-person team.

Michael Quesenberry, president, Chemring Ordnance, said: 'We are delighted in the US Army customer’s continued confidence in Chemring to provide protection for their soldiers and marines.'
