Unique remote firing system set for worldwide demo

Long-range system to enhance EOD, IED and demolitions




Chemring Technology Solutions is preparing its widely anticipated LoRIS (Long-range Radio Initiation System) for international demonstrations and full verification of its safety and suitability for military application, following a successful product launch in March.

LoRIS is a remote firing system for military engineering applications that uses state-of-the-art digital spread spectrum radio technology. LoRIS provides a safe and secure capability for the accurate and reliable initiation of energetic events.

Programme managers told Defence IQ that the system offers military engineers “a unique capability for flexibility. Users can program a custom configuration ‘kit’ for a multitude of desired missions, such as EOD, IED and demolitions.”

LoRIS boasts an integrated two-way data communication protocol, enabling real time interrogation of all deployed firing devices in the field.

LoRIS can be configured with up to ten Remote Initiation Devices (RID) with any combination of shock tube and electric firing outputs. The remote firing devices exclusively link to the system’s hand-held controller and unique safety key. Operators are therefore be able to use the technology to react and adjust faster in what has become an increasingly diverse and sophisticated threat landscape.

Further to these benefits, the technology boasts an integrated two-way data communication protocol, enabling real time interrogation of all deployed firing devices in the field. Meanwhile, the use of icon-based data presentation on the LoRIS Hand Held Controller (HHC), provides text-free understanding of system information for rapid condition assurance. This removes any excess training burden or language interpretation/translation issues.

The system also has a wide range of integrated features designed to facilitate the safe and reliable initiation of explosives including: high energy outputs (for insensitive group 3 detonators), programming of safety delay timing for increasing safe separation at deployment, increased field life capability via an industry standard micro-USB interface, and the incorporation of the guaranteed unique system safety key that prevents inadvertent operation of the HHC.

The system will shortly undergo extensive environmental and EMC trials, verifying the safety and suitability for military applications worldwide.

Since the initial launch, LoRIS has now reached the final phase of development, with systems currently being manufactured. These will shortly undergo extensive environmental and EMC trials, verifying the safety and suitability for military applications worldwide.

Chemring Technology Solutions intends to present and demonstrate LoRIS at conferences and exhibitions worldwide including Land Forces 2018 in Adelaide, Australia and Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) 2018 in South Africa (both in September). Equipment will then be available for demonstration and capability presentations around the world, with serial manufacture scheduled to commence in early 2019.

More information on the technology can be found on the official website.
