Pyroalliance designs and produces different kinds of Flight Termination Systems for tactical missiles. Those systems are embarked on missiles which are fired on military test ranges, typically in the frame of the testing and qualification process of the related missiles. Their function is to terminate the flight and protect the test range as well as the populated areas in case the missile dangerously deviates from its nominal trajectory.

More generally, Pyroalliance delivers complete pyrotechnic chains adapted to its customers’ needs.
They are designed and manufactured under Pyroalliance design authority.
