No doubt that small controlled blasts intensify military training. The excitement and the adrenaline rush are essential in every military course. Training IEDs made of lamps and sirens solve only half the problem. This is why EST-CIED brought a smile to instructors' faces when they first saw it in action.
The electrically operated trigger system allows the instructors to create different switches and use EST-CIED in various situations. The device uses 9V batteries and is made out of special military-grade plastic and stainless steel parts. A NATO 5.56 blank cartridge delivers a small and safe blast when the circuit is closed by the switch.
