  • Patent number: 9372048
    Abstract: A system and method for ballistically cutting a multi-link metal chain comprises a chain alignment module that comprises three pins and attaches to the barrel of a firearm. A first pin and a second pin of the module fit on opposite sides of a target link of the chain. A third pin of the alignment module goes through a link adjacent to the target link of the chain. The three pins align the target link so that a bullet exiting the barrel of a firearm impacts a semicircular region of the target link to cause the target link to open.

  • Patent number: 8919046
    Abstract: An explosive breach training system comprising a frame having a lock jamb with two opposing ends and an inner surface, first and second opposing frame members connected to the opposing ends of the lock jamb, and a third frame member having ends connected to the first and second frame members opposite of the lock jamb. The frame defines an interior space. A cylindrical elongate member is within the interior space and has ends attached to the first and second frame member at attachment points. A door member has a hinge side and a lock side, and is within a door space at least partially defined by the lock jamb and the portions of the first and second frame members extending between the attachment points and the opposing ends of the lock jamb. A lock bracket is adjacent to the lock jamb, and defines an elongate slot intersecting with a portion of the door space.

  • Patent number: 8128408
    Abstract: A door breach training system comprising a first restraint assembly connecting a door to a frame. The door is attached to a lock jamb of the frame with a first restraint assembly that exposes a shear joint to impact from a projectile, such as shotgun round. Another embodiment further comprises attachment of the door to the hinge jamb with at least one second restraint assembly that functionally simulates a typical door hinge and exposes a shear joint to impact from a ballistic round. The preferred embodiment includes replaceable lock panels and hinge panels that are designed to break in a known manner in order to replicate those same failure modes for both door locks and door hinges in typical residential and commercial construction environments.

  • Patent number: 7900538
    Abstract: A packable battering ram quickly disassembled for transport by two or more persons. In the preferred embodiment, the invention has first and second body members that are symmetrical, but otherwise identically shaped and sized. When assembled, the first and second body members form a lower surface that has a concave portion that approximates the natural curvature of the back of an adult male. The packable battering may be disassembled to distribute the weight between multiple people, yet quickly assembled for use upon arrival at a emergency response location.

  • Patent number: 7337515
    Abstract: An device for breaching an outwardly opening door and methods for use thereof. The device combines a serrated blade for penetrating the crevice between a door and a doorjamb and an extendable handle with a ratcheting mechanism allowing the operator to remain out of the line of fire when breaching the door. The device may also be used by a single operator by initially driving the blade between the door and doorjamb via a hammering function involving the retraction of the extendable handle combined with the weighted block and thrusting force applied thereto.
