Traditional ballistic breaching has been shown to be effective in a variety of applications where rapid entry with low collateral damage is desired. These techniques generally involved firing a slug composed of dense metals using a 12 gauge shotgun into a door’s locking mechanism. The requirement to use a shotgun for breaching both increases an operator’s load and makes them less effective at engaging other targets.
RMSL has developed a high-energy, thermally stable, reactive composition that has been tuned to initiate violently upon impact with hard targets (e.g., hinges, lock mechanisms, etc.). KRWS has already been successfully demonstrated in small arms platforms. These compositions have demonstrated breaching performance similar to a 12 gauge breaching round against typical lock and hinge targets on solid-core wood, fiberglass, and steel-clad doors.
