Containment vessels are used by forces such as National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), and National Security Guard (NSG). These containment vessels are used for detonating improvised explosive devices (IED) and explosives inside them. The entire explosion energy is absorbed inside the containment vessels, and hence they are safely deployed to detonate explosives in crowded public areas with no damage to personnel and property.
The IED containment vessel was designed, developed, and tested by DRDO. This cost-effective, one-time use alternative can absorb the blast energy due to the explosion of 4kg TNT explosive and 6 kg IED at a distance of 0.5m.
