Troops conducting dismounted operations need a man-portable system to counter trip-wire activated IEDs and mined antipersonnel obstacles. US Maneuvering elements conducting dismounted operations in some remote and hostile regions of Afghanistan are encountering mined antipersonnel obstacles. These obstacles impede their ability to conduct tactical movement and covered infiltration on selected targets in urban or complex environments. US Maneuvering elements conducting dismounted operations need a munitions system to counter trip-wire activated IEDs and mined antipersonnel obstacles that offers a more precise lightweight and compact design and that is easier to transport than the Mk7 Antipersonnel Obstacle Breaching System (APOBS) currently being used. The ISAF "Rules of Engagement" require the use of precision fires in the deliberate targeting process to minimize collateral concern and effects on non-combatant personnel, structures and property.

The system must be light weight and man-portable, weighing less than 30 lbs and easily carried by one Soldier.

The system must provide a lane of at least 25m in length.

The system must be rocket launch and reach a height of greater than 6 feet from the ground.

The system must be command detonate only and initiate via a NONEL system.

The system must provide the Soldier with 100 ft of standoff.

The system must be safety confirmed by the Army and have an Interim Hazard Classification (IHC).
