(Source: Atlas Elektronik; issued Sept. 13, 2011)


BREMEN, Germany/LONDON --- Atlas Elektronik has recently teamed with ECS Special Projects Ltd. to exclusively provide the EOD tool COBRA for the ATLAS SeaFox System.

The COBRA (Clip-On BX-90 Re-loadable Assembly) can be fitted to the re-usable SeaFox vehicle offering Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) capability from surface to 300m.

Combined with the Rigid-hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) based SeaFox VSW version COBRA provides a hard-kill disposal capability which can be delivered by remote means by MCM Expeditionary Forces.

With COBRA, Atlas is also able to satisfy the market demand for a cost effective historical ordnance disposal capability and offer multiple target prosecution / multiple target initiation by remote means which makes the whole SeaFox System unique.

During Operation Open Spirit 2011, a multi-national ordnance disposal exercise in the Baltic Sea, COBRA and SeaFox-I successfully disposed of several items of historic ordnance.

COBRA will be displayed at DSEi 2011 on the ATLAS pavilion (stand S6-390).
