In the case of undetonated air drop bombs, the fuses are extremely unstable due to corrosion and aging. This creates a serious issue with construction and excavation projects, among other applications. Vibration from large equipment and digging operations have the potential to set off these UXO buried in the ground below, triggering the long-dormant objects to detonate.

When it comes to increasing productivity, the simpler the process, the better.

That was our line of thinking as we designed and built the A2 Single & Multi Docks. Compatible with the Archer 2™ and Allegro 2™ rugged handhelds, the A2 Dock eliminates the tangle of cords you have to negotiate every time you want to charge your handheld and sync your data.

The result? Greater simplicity and efficiency. Fewer headaches.

Watch the video below, showing how super easy charging and syncing is with the A2 dock. To get a quote, contact us online or give us a call at 435.753.1881.
