Rafale aircraft flying over mountains


Air superiority is very often decisive in armed conflicts. 
Combat aircrafts are governed by the harshest operational conditions as part of their missions.


For the units' armament, the crew's safety, and the success of these missions, the air forces must count on the most reliable and safer pyrotechnical ignition solutions. 


The DBD products are known for their proven robustness.


Engaged equally in the reliability and the security of air missions, they naturally fit the most sophisticated applications: payload ejection, cockpit evacuation, decoy and countermeasures devices actuators, airmissiles… 


Release systems cartridges

A concentrated form of technologies and savoir-faire, the DBD cartridges used for payload ejection applications meet the OTAN standards (STANAG 3556 – STANAG 3575).

The DBD line focuses on various optimized versions depending on the applicable operational environment conditions and, on the other side, the expected functional performances (generated gas volume, specified ejection speed…).
