Mantis has been developed specifically to offer a lightweight Disruptor capability having equivalent performance to ABP’s other general purpose disruptors. The Mantis operates using the PT 1066 cartridge.
This disruptor has been tested using impact measurement, radiography, high speed photography & simulated targets to positively verify absolute and comparative performance. The Mantis is particularly suited to applications such as Special Forces operations where equipment weight and ease of deployment are paramount.
The Mantis is also suited for use on small Unmanned Groud Vehicles (UGV) with limited payload carrying capability or to allow multiple weapons to be carried by a single UGV. Conventional deployment either manually or by UGV is of course possible.
The Mantis is a single shot device, which is supplied piston in place with a closure cap and breech. It is therefore self contained with no cleaning or ancillary equipment required and no armoury / maintenance required.
