Also known as a Bulk Destruct Charge, this device is used to terminate the flight of an errant launch vehicle, missile or target vehicle. A critical component of our Flight Termination System, it is designed to receive a detonation input signal from a Detonator or Explosive Transfer Line. Upon initiation, the high explosive output penetrates and vents the vehicle motor case to terminate the vehicle flight. Missile applications, strategic and tactical, along with space applications of flight termination can easily be tailored to achieve mission goals. Our destruct charges can easily serve multiple applications with tailored mounting options.


Our engineering heritage for designing and manufacturing Flight Termination and Destruct Systems used in Launch Vehicles, Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM’s), Conventional Missiles, and Target Vehicles dates back over three decades to the Space Shuttle and Minuteman III ICBM. We are regularly involved in new vehicle design and qualification activities as our diverse product base, coupled with our experience as systems integrators, provides for innovative design concepts tailored to meet individual application requirements.

Extensive knowledge of Range Safety (meeting both EWR 127-1 and RCC-319) requirements enables us to offer technically superior, high reliability systems which conform to the stringent standards designed to assure safety of the public, property and environment.
