About Dynamit Nobel Defence
Dynamit Nobel Defence GmbH (DND) is a German medium-sized defence company. DND is a direct successor of the former Dynamit Nobel companies belonging to the Alfred Nobel Group. We look back at more than 60 years of experience in the development and production of shoulder-launched weapons for anti-tank, anti-armor, and multipurpose uses. Our portfolio has vastly expanded and today includes holistic vehicle protection concepts, fire protection systems for military and commercial uses, test charges, environmental and qualification test services as well as R&D. Today, we are a full system supplier and global technology leader, trusted by German and international armed forces and services worldwide.
|Technology and Development|
Dynamit Nobel Defence is a system supplier and center of expertise for various key defence technologies. Research & development, design, manufacturing, qualification and testing: We focus on cutting-edge technology!
Dynamit Nobel Defence fields two distinct shoulder-fired weapon concepts: The RGW (Recoilless Grenade Weapon) system and the iconic Panzerfaust 3 family. Both concepts encompass a variety of Davis Gun principle, recoilless, shoulder-launched, single-soldier operated, disposable weapons for anti-tank, anti-structure and multipurpose uses. Our munitions are designed to be operated against a wide spectrum of targets and offer different firing modes for maximum flexibility.
Their design makes our systems
• highly lethal and effective,
• intuitive and easy to use with minimum training required,
• maintenance free,
• life-cycle cost effective.
|Dynamit Nobel Defence provides customized solutions and protection concepts for any kind of combat vehicle. Our core competence lies in the field for Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) that can be designed as add-on solutions within a modernization program of an existing combat vehicle, or as well as a part of the concept of a newly developed military vehicle. |
ERA concepts build on the vehicle’s existing armor and use additional passive elements. High quality ballistic fiber material and extremely insensitive explosives are being used. Weight reduction of up to 80% compared to pure passive protection concepts can be achieved. Via industrial partnerships and with consolidated expertise in other areas of vehicle protection, DND is able to develop, test and manufacture protection solutions for different platforms.
Today, DND’s protection kits are fielded and combat-proven on infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and main battle tanks for national and international customers. Additionally, several concepts of alternative use for ERA (including commercial uses) have been developed.
|Fire Protection for commercial use|
|Effective fire protection is crucial for the survival of man and machine. Complex requirements demand innovative, compact and efficient extinguishing and suppression systems for commercial applications. Our Dynameco aerosol-based fire extinguishing systems are suited for fighting fires in a wide spectrum of use cases. All of our Dynameco systems are eco-friendly and hazard-free for humans and animals.|
