Engaging targets above the surface from a submerged position has, until now, been impossible for military personnel. Our Cav-X™ ammunition enables divers to fire weapons while submerged, taking out targets on the surface before surfacing themselves. Because of the accuracy, penetration, and energy delivery properties of CAV-X™, not only combatants but cameras, industrial pumps, armored targets, and other critical vulnerabilities are susceptible to attack by small arms fire from underwater. Additionally, submerged covert divers now have the unheard of ability to defend themselves with their firearms. The versatility of CAV-X™ means that underwater targets are equally susceptible to attack by divers armed only with a rifle.
The ability to fire on underwater targets from surface vessels and aircraft expands the utility of existing platforms for the Coast Guard, Navy, and maritime law enforcement entities. Firing conventional ammunition at submerged targets is completely ineffective if they are more than a few inches beneath the surface, and the potential for surface ricochet presents an unacceptable risk. CAV-X™ projectiles safely continue into the water, even at shallow angles, and retain effective velocity to their targets.
The XMP™, with its precision, penetration, and force delivery render targets previously impervious or resistant to 7.62x51mm fire vulnerable. With twice the energy of available rounds at 500m, and four times as much at 800m, the XMP™ carries 1,356nm (1,000 ft/lbs) of energy to 1,000m and remains supersonic to 1,200m. The mass of the projectile and its unique ballistics allow every end user from snipers to mini-gunners to obtain positive, lethal results on targets previously reserved for larger calibers, and do so at unheard of ranges.
