The Tetra-X is a dynamic kit of tools in a streamlined multi-functional package, giving operators safe, compact options to solve tactical problems. Tetra-x is packed with user supplied explosives and is nonexplosive before use allowing the system to be shipped and carried using standard methods, reducing logistics costs while reducing overall explosives consumption through more efficient use. This translates to reduced overall mission cost and logistics.
