MDM16: Rafael Unveils IMPACK HE Demolition Charge

At Modern Day Marine, starting tomorrow, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems is featuring its portfolio of advanced land systems for force survivability, maneuverability and lethality. The company is unveiling IMPACK, a revolutionary high explosive, insensitive demolition charge designed as a safe solution for explosive handling, to be used by combat engineers, infantry troops and bomb squad units in demolition operations.

IMPACK has a high level of safety in storage, transportation, handling and use, to minimise potential proximate and collateral damage. It meets IM - STANAG 4439 requirements for Insensitive Munitions (IM) and can withstand a direct large shape-charge impact. IMPACK will not detonate in safe mode. Arming is on the spot and takes only a few seconds. 

In addition, Rafael is presenting the following systems:
