Radio Frequency Remote Firing Device Upgrade
The commercial Radio Frequency Remote Firing Device (RFD) previously developed by TSWG is a low-cost, lightweight, battery-operated firing system used by civilian law enforcement personnel for firing electric detonators, electrically primed cartridges, blasting caps, and an explosive shock tube in the performance of render-safe procedures. The U.S. Air Force requested an upgrade to the RFD to meet the operational requirements of deploying EOD teams. This effort incorporated recommended changes identified during an Operational Utility Evaluation of the RFD system. The upgraded system provides the EOD community with an extremely rugged, low-cost firing system.
