In current commercial detonation (i.e. for quarries, mining or tunneling) workers must run kilometers of detonation cord. This process is time consuming, prone to safety risks and costly and in military operations, buried devices need to be covertly detonated free of any wiring.

Vital Alert technology enables wireless detonation of explosives below the earth’s surface using buried radios and antennas. Wireless detonation provides additional benefits such as improved blast timing, covert signals, accuracy and safety.
