The e-Squib

DSSP has developed a new line of pyrotechnic devices for the entertainment industry.  The eSquib is the first and only electro-pyro device that is digitally controlled and able to fire hundreds of times before being replaced.  This means an extremely low per-shot cost, less wiring labor, and immediate retakes for film makers.  Its ignition creates a fast bright flash with a loud POP, making it suitable for a variety of special effects including gun muzzle flash, lasers, bullet hits, electrical arcs, sparks, and sci-fi imagery.

The eSquib is green, safe, smoke-free, odor-free, and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.  It has been welcomed by State Fire Marshals as being safer, thus having reduced permitting requirements.  The eSquib is a game changing technology for live design, film makers, theme parks, and even military training.
