Chemical, Biological & Radiological (CBRN) Disposal Through Invasive Technology

MMIC EOD are at the forefront of technology designed to investigate and dispose of CBRN munitions, IEDs and their precursor elements.  Our technology provides military and security organizations with the capability to access any munition, container or vessel and neutralize its contents.  MMIC have built a close partnership with some of world’s leading specialist EOD units to invent systems tailored to their particular needs.

Our equipment utilizes unique sealed invasive technology developed in-house and can be used on any target from small packages to large aircraft bombs, from deployed weapons to laboratory equipment.  It offers a fast, safe and flexible approach to CBRN investigation, disposal or neutralization.

We invent, develop and manufacture all our own equipment whether our standard products or bespoke solutions.  This capability means we are very responsive and able to adapt equipment as the customer’s situation demands.

Our team is highly experienced with backgrounds in military IEDD and CBRN, specialist engineering and live agent training.  In addition to supplying equipment we MMIC also offer consultancy and training services in the CBRN and EOD fields.

Invasive Technology in CBRN - Reducing Uncertainty

The challenge with any CB device is that its contents are normally confined within some form of sealed container, designed to rupture when the device is initiated.  The external walls or shielding do a simple but important job - keeping the hazard safely contained. Unfortunately they also prevent access to the contents for investigation and neutralisation.

Standard chemical agent monitors depend on an agent release or sample for them to function. Non-invasive detection methods, such as neutron activation analysis will provide information on the elemental composition of materials but not direct evidence of their chemical structure. The only totally reliable technique for the analysis of the contents is to take a physical sample.

Invasive technology offers the ability to penetrate a vessel wall without allowing the contents to escape. The equipment is capable of allowing sealed access through nearly any munition or container wall.  MMIC invasive equipment
is designed to insert a gas-tight, self-sealing probe through the target casing.
They can deal with a wide range of materials including metal and plastics over a considerable range of wall thicknesses. Once installed the probes give fully sealed access for sampling, extraction and in-situ neutralisation of the
contents. This can be repeated as often as required. Power can be either electric, hydraulic or compressed air.

The Monica Remote Case Entry System for CBRN Disposal

The MMIC Monica equipment is the first system to offer a complete solution for the disposal of CBW in conventional or improvised devices. Utilising innovative technology it is the only equipment capable of invasively interrogating any device without leakage into the surrounding environment. One sealed penetration gives access for sampling, disposal or visual investigation – CBEOD has never been simpler.  

Monica offers a field proven capability to sample and dispose of any chemical or biological threats, regardless of vessel without contaminating the environment.  It can penetrate high pressure targets of any shape, size or material with wall thicknesses up to 20mm. A sample can obtained and identified in less than 5 minutes.  In common with all our products it is designed to be simple and intuitive to use, even when wearing full Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE).

WMD Disposal using MATS

MATS (Monica Agent Transfer System) is a lightweight and compact system designed to empty and backflush munitions, IEDs or containers of TICs (Toxic Industrial Chemicals) once they have been accessed by the Monica Case Entry System.

In common with the Monica system, MATS is powered by compressed air and will rapidly and controllably decant even highly viscous fills from targets. The penetration used for sampling is utilised to pressurise the target which effectively blows out the agent into a sealed container.  Once the agent is removed, fully sealed decontamination of the device is possible without exposing operatives or their environment to the contents at any stage in the process.  Decontaminant or other solutions may be introduced into, then removed from, the target any number of times until all the contents have
been fully neutralised.

Midas CBRN Hand Held Sampling System

Although the Monica sampling & disposal system has many advantages, there are situations where the ability to rapidly take a small sample of the contents of a container is preferable.  For this reason MMIC has developed the Midas disposable sampler, allowing access to the contents of a container using a simple, safe, reliable and leak-free approach.  Applications include the sampling of suspected CW (chemical warfare) materials and TICs (toxic industrial chemicals).

Once complete a sample can be drawn using a MMIC Mk3 syringe. The syringe clips onto the drive shaft and is equipped with drip flat couplers to reduce contamination.  For simple analysis the barrel of the syringe is compatible with Raman spectroscopy equipment, allowing a result to be obtained in under 3 minutes.  The whole system is powered using a standard electric screwgun or drill (a manual drill can also be used). It is compatible with nearly all chuck configurations.
