The Article

P3D Solutions Inc and the Dutch Special Operations community can trace its history back approximately five years, prior even to the founding of P3D Solutions.

The founders of P3D Solutions had the opportunity to instruct at a training center in Germany where-in the Dutch were a member nation.

One of the instructors was from the Dutch Korps Commando Troepen (KCT), and a positive relationship was born.

Over the course of time, P3D Solutions founders had the opportunity to train with KCT Operators.

And they were privileged to lead the training of a company of the KCT direct support soldiers in Urban Combat and Close Quarters Battle and instruct numerous other members of their armed forces in shooting and CQB.

The BreachPop was designed from the ground up with the assaulter in mind

The BreachPop was conceived based on the founders’ experience in CQB and Breaching in order to reduce the net explosive weight (NEW) necessary to breach a target.

The BreachPop was designed from the ground up with the assaulter in mind by easily fitting into existing magazine pouches and being durable enough to survive rough handling.

Additionally, to reduce traumatic brain injuries sustained in breaching operations, the tamping medium is a proprietary water-polymer gel capable of reducing measured blast overpressure by up to 60% compared to conventional charges of the same NEW Ultimately, the BreachPop has proven to be a durable, easy to build, easy to carry charge that enhances safety in both the operational and training environment.

After the founding of P3D Solutions

After the founding of P3D Solutions, the relationship was rekindled with the Dutch Special Operations Forces while they were engaged in a training event at Tactical Energetic Entry Solutions (TEES) in the USA.

Alan Brosnan, the owner of TEES, facilitated the first KCT and MARSOF purchase of a test and evaluation pack from P3D Solutions.

From his time working and developing the BreachPop overseas, Justin, a US Army Green Beret and founder of P3D Solutions, provided them with direct instruction on application of the BreachPop to European targets.

MARSOF Marines chose to make another purchase of BreachPops to supplement their training and enhance operations

On a subsequent trip for training in the USA, Steve from the Dutch MARSOF Marines chose to make another purchase of BreachPops to supplement their training and enhance operations at home and abroad.

It was ultimately due to the failures of some other commercial products they were testing and the positive prior results they experienced with the BreachPops.

They are choosing to depend on the BreachPop 8”/20cm strip charges and the BreachPop Bi-Fold linear due to the numerous benefits provided by both.
