The manufacturing

All training devices are made in the house using CNC technology. The parts are milled from stock materials and require several different steps to complete. The plastic parts are made of polyamide which is known for its strength and outstanding wear resistance. Firing mechanisms and other critical parts are made out of corrosion-resistant steel.

All sales are restricted to official use only and are not available to the general public.

EST-M1 training landmine

The story

After months of demining sand-filled training landmines and encountering minefields made of wooden disks, it was clear. The psychological fear had completely disappeared. It was at that moment when the idea of EST-M1 emerged which could take the minefield training into the 21st century.

After years of testing, we have developed a reusable training landmine for instructors that use NATO 5.56 blank ammunition for the blast and sound effects. The combination of heavy-duty plastic and stainless steel parts makes the EST-M1 highly durable and is able to withstand 2.5 tons of weight.

EST-CIED training IED

The story

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.

EST-DET training charge

The story

Fire in the hole!" followed by a push on a blasting machine button and a loud bang. A procedure that is strictly regulated and requires special training areas and paperwork. But not with EST-DET. Same effect with less headache.

The device uses the electrical impulse of a blasting machine to initiate a NATO 7.62 blank cartridge. The device is safe to handle and can be used in a variety of situations to imitate a blast of a charge. The passive direct initiation system (PDIS) is only active when a blasting machine is connected to terminals.

  • NSN 1375-38-001-4855

  • -20°C up to +40°C

  • Weather-resistant

  • Reusable

  • Blank NATO 7.62 (available in other calibres)

  • Initiation energy 5J

  • Weight 350g

  • Size ø40 x 175mm

EST-MTO module tank obstacle

The story

After testing the iconic WWII "Czech hedgehog" with a 45T excavator, the myth was busted. The steel obstacle is unable to withstand the weight of modern-day armoured vehicles and tanks. After 3D modelling, strength calculations and testing, the EST-MTO exceeded expectations and found a place in the Estonian Defence Forces.

The obstacle is made out of standard steel profiles and is easy to produce. The design can be scaled down to a smaller size to cope with commercial vehicles at security checkpoints. Our aim is to offer you the know-how and the drawings so you could procure the obstacles locally.

  • NSN 4240-38-001-4819

  • Material S355J2

  • Total weight 106kg

  • Height ca. 1m

  • For asphalt and gravel surfaces

  • Assembling time under 1 minute, no tools are required

EST-M21T training directional AP mine

The story

Directional mines are force multipliers. They are used primarily in ambushes and as anti-infiltration devices against enemy units. Dummy directional mines serve little purpose in force-on-force training. That's why EST-M21T is a game changer.
