Abstract: The noise/flash diversionary device (NFDD) has become an essential tool for law enforcement tactical teams. Manufacturers of NFDD's have developed training devices to realistically simulate the operational characteristics of standard NFDD's. Although the energy released from the training model is insufficient to use the irritant powder modules, other accessories may be used for the same purposes that they might be used operationally. Examples include trip wiring, perimeter protection, remote initiation, and attaching lanyards for retrieval. The fuze is the most important part of a pyrotechnic munition. Combined Tactical Systems (CTS) Inc., has taken the standard military M201A1 fuze and improved it to provide increased consistency, reliability, and safety. The article describes the CTS Flash-Bang Training System as a superb, cost-effective training tool. The Model 7290T Training Flash-Bang is a low-cost training device that realistically simulates all the functional characteristics of a standard NFDD without any of the liabilities associated with using a full-power device.
