Total Containment Vehicle

The "TCV" (Total Containment Vehicle) is made from high-strength, high-impact steel of 38 mm thickness and is gas tight.  The "TCV" has a 15 lb. C-4 explosive rating for repeated use.    The suspect explosive device is contained in a disposable basket which is loaded into the unit. The telescopic internal basket assembly allows the unit to be used in conjunction with EOD remotely operated vehicles, virtually eliminating human exposure during the loading process.   Self-closing door operates via an automatic hydraulic yoke system.
