AES manufactures specialized breaching systems used by law enforcement and militaries around the world. Each system is designed to perform reliably in austere environments.


AES produces a line of specialty breaching charges used by Military and Law Enforcement agencies around the world.  Our premanufactured explosive breaching charges eliminate the need to assemble charges in the field.  The rugged, lightweight charges utilize a novel explosive fill that allows the user to defeat a target using a lower NEW than would be required by traditional means.

With a variety of available sizes and configurations, the user can select a single charge for the specific target or utilize multiple charges to defeat a more robust target.

Please contact us for additional information on our breaching charges.
