A design to aid EOD technicians in the safe deactivation of explosive devices.

The Attack Tool is designed to enhance the safety and versatility of EOD operators while working in the field. The improved tool introduces a rack and pinion gear system allowing for a 90° bend when inserted through a 1.5” diameter hole, generating a hemispherical range of attack. The tool can generate multiple cuts through 14 gauge wire via a pneumatic system, actuated by the existing tool handle
