New 'Smart' Flash-bang Makes First-ever Debut at SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range™

Liberty Dynamic device designed to be safer, more accurate, than current stun grenades
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—January 18, 2019—Liberty Dynamic announced that it will be showcasing for the first time ever its Enhanced Diversionary Device at the SHOT Show® Industry Day at the Range™, on January 21, at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club, in Boulder City, Nevada.

This new, programmable, enhanced blast flash-bang is designed to be safer than legacy devices still being used by the military and law enforcement. “Our goal is to provide peacekeepers with a reliable first line of defense,” said John Chapman, CEO of Liberty Dynamic.

“The problem with most stun grenades is they can go off when they aren’t supposed to, roll towards an unintended target, cause fires and scatter secondary debris,” said Chapman. “All of that leads to death, injury and lawsuits.”

The Enhanced Diversionary Device, an advanced flash-bang developed by Liberty Dynamic and supported in part by a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. Air Force, is meant to solve all those problems—and be cost-efficient at the same time.

The Enhanced Diversionary Device has a microprocessor-controlled “smart” fuse providing:

  • Precise detonation
  • Greater reliability and safety for uniformed men, women, and civilians.

The Enhanced Diversionary Device also has an ergonomic, rectangular design to prevent out-of-control rolling, while the detonation itself is powered by binary energetic material.

“We use a proprietary fuel-air technology that doesn’t rely on flash powder,” Chapman explained. “As a result, we cut down on fire, smoke and secondary debris being kicked up and injuring people.”

In addition, the Enhanced Diversionary Device is reloadable, saving end users money.

“This isn’t your granddaddy’s flash-bang,” Chapman said.
