The BP-2 is sold and manufactured for the specific purpose of deploying NFDD’s into a structure/opening. The most effective way to prevent a NFDD contact injury is to prevent the device from coming in contact with people. The BP-2 allows the operator to insert a NFDD into a location and directly control the placement of the device at the moment of deflagration.
The BP-2 not only enhances the safety and effectiveness of your operations but precludes the possibility of injuries by tossing/contact errors, no “ignition in the hand” and no flying body impacts. The BP-2 reduces the probability of the most common NFDD injuries to zero, and adds two extremely important secondary benefits as well.
First: When porting a window with the DP/BP-2, this technique draws the suspect's attention towards the NFDD deployment point, and away from the breaching elements entry point. This greatly enhances officer safety, as compared to the more common practice of breaching the door, visually inspecting the interior and tossing or rolling the device - then stepping into the room.
Second: The BP-2 truly enhances overall NFDD performance upon deployment. Remember, a NFDD that deflagrates on the floor generally lose a significant percentage of their effectiveness - as the light, sound and over pressure are shielded and absorbed by the furniture, carpet. Many operators have also witnessed the "tangle foot" that is routinely found between the suspect and the NFDD while tossing/rolling into the opening. The BP-2 allows the operator to port a window and deflagrate the NFDD into the proximity above the suspect, allowing the totally unshielded and often reflected effects to "rain" down upon him/her.
NFDD’s are a valuable piece of tactical equipment. Remember to keep it safe and make sure your future NFDD deployments are exactly where your operators want them...safe, controlled and effective.
