Every Successful Launch.

PacSci EMC – with over 55 years of energetic solutions expertise – boasts the ability to meet even the most complex performance and integration requirements. Our pyrotechnic initiators and electro-explosive devices are mission critical. Working the first time is the ONLY option.

Intelligent engineering provides you with 1 device and over 700 different solutions, all of which are adaptable to virtually any purpose or function where pyrotechnic and/or electro-explosive energy is desired. Electro-Explosive Devices (EEDs) can be used for electric detonation applications and electrically initiated explosives. Initiators and EEDs convert an electric pulse into a detonating output.

All of our pyrotechnic initiators include features such as output pressure values, rise times, ranges of current levels for no-fire, all-fire, maximum function times to initiation or peak pressure, dent depth and more, to meet just about any mission.
