The Pluton™ is a shaped charge system in the Vulcan family of charges and is the next size up from the Vulcan.
As part of the Vulcan™ family, it shares many common design features with the other sizes reducing the training burden of introducing a completely new system.
The Pluton™ is designed for many applications including causing deliberate detonation of home-made IEDs buried in the ground and underwater disruption of improvised shaped charges. The system includes a number of different projectiles – copper jet forming cone, copper EFP, magnesium high performance jet forming cone and a liquid projectile. There are also a number of stands and delivery systems and accessories such as an underwater capsule.
