South Korea’s elite forces and engineering units have completed the deployment of an advanced but lighter device to detonate explosives via wireless signal, the state arms agency announced Tuesday.

The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) developed the Remote Activation Munition System (RAMS) in partnership with Huneed Technologies, a local defense firm, in 2014.

In December, DAPA wrapped up the delivery of the system to the special forces of the Army, the Navy and the Marine Corps, as well as engineering battalions.

“The new RAMS is equipment to destroy the enemy’s command center and key facilities for use by our troops infiltrating deep into its territory and support the maneuvering of engineering units,” the agency said.
