CSI was founded in 1981 and designs, manufactures and markets security products for global defence and law enforcement markets.

Typhon Group has developed a range of less lethal, reloadable distraction systems and products with precision remote control initiation capabilities.  Amongst the product portfolio are light weight (sub 100gram) payload systems for mUAS/UAS and UGV platforms in addition to less lethal stand-alone systems.  The revolutionary technology employed enables the devices to be programmable creating distraction events; examples of which are:

  • Five Round Burst - Likened to automatic rifle fire;
  • Single Shot - Programmable and user controlled;
  • Shock and Awe - All five events simultaneously.

Due to the design of the technology, the risk of personal injury, fire, fragmentation or other collateral damage is negligible.

Typhon Groups staff have over 75 years of experience of developing technical solutions for Law Enforcement, Military and Government surveillance, giving our engineers an in-depth knowledge of the unique challenges faced by hostile environments and enabling them to design custom solutions meeting the operational requirements of our End Users.

Typhon products are relevant for Law Enforcement, Military, Government and Private Security markets and are positioned to enhance the operational capabilities of small unmanned aerial and ground-based platforms.

Applications include (but are not limited to), covert operations, counter terrorism, crowd control, law enforcement, close protection, aviation and maritime.

Clive Edwards, CEO of Typhon Group Limited, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with CSI.  After visiting their facilities and careful consideration it made perfect sense to partner with the market leader throughout the US.  The management team within CSI are at the top of their game and we are all motivated to embed the Typhon® Technologies into the fabric of our mutual customers within Law Enforcement and Military agencies globally”.

Don Smith, CEO of CSI, added: “We have been intrigued with the Typhon products since the development stage and are very pleased to be working with the Typhon Group to bring these capabilities to the significant US Law Enforcement and Department of Defense markets, as well as to other targeted end users throughout the rest of the world”.

Typhon products are less lethal distraction devices that negate the risks associated with conventional pyrotechnic devices. Its core concept is a range of less lethal devices providing the same sound effect as a conventional percussion grenade, minimising the associated risks of personal injury, secondary fire and fragmentation damage to property. The systems have a digitally programmable fuse, reducing the risk of negligent discharge.

Also, to comply with ever tightening regulation on environmental pollution, the devices are recyclable/reloadable reducing through-life costs plus the environmental impact when used on training ranges etc. Our product range also includes unique RF initiated Glass Method of Entry tools and we have developed the capability to mount variants of our less-lethal diversionary devices onto mUAS/UAS and UGV platforms to provide force protection and enhanced tactical advantage to military, law enforcement, government and security teams.

Founded in 1981, Combined Systems, Inc. (CSI) is a supplier of less-lethal munitions and launching systems, CSI manufactures products for riot control, police tactical teams, corrections officers, and military units.

CSI is the parent company of brand names Combined Tactical Systems (CTS), Penn Arms, CTS Thompson Handcuffs & Restraints and CTS Training Institute. Through these brand names, CSI is able to support the needs of its customers in all aspects, including research and development, product support, sales and training.
