Assault Launcher MaxThe ALM is the high performance line thrower specifically designed for tactical teams. The rugged aluminum launcher is manufactured for use in the most extreme maritime and urban environments to deploy a line, a grappling hook and climbing line, or a grappling hook and tactical ladder for method of entry and vessel boarding from surface or subsurface locations. The ALM is the ultimate tool for tactical teams requiring boat-stopping equipment when used with the RGES (Running Gear Entanglement System) SF40 payload.

  • Utilizing a patented air-thrust technology, the ALM is non-pyrotechnic, reusable, and refillable.
  • Launcher housings are cast from 356-T6 Aluminum for the best weight-to-strength ratio. The ALM barrels are powder-coated black for covert operations and have a lifetime guarantee against all hazards.
  • 4,500 psi / 300 bar service pressure line projectile.
  • 3,000 psi / 207 bar service pressure line projectile.

MAXimum Distance

The ALM is capable of deploying a 3,200 lb test strength line horizontally up to 330 ft/100 m.

The ALM can deploy a 7.0 mm climbing line with a grappling hook vertically up to 165 ft/50 m.

A 65 ft/20 m Tactical Ladder and grappling hook can be fully deployed by the ALM.

MAXimum Safety

The safety mechanism is "always on," resetting automatically when a projectile is inserted.

The projectile's "Push-Click" engagement allows easy reloading, even in the dark.

A pressure relief burst disk prevents unsafe pressure build-up that could result from exposure to extreme heat.

Each launcher is fitted with a luminous pressure gauge for close visibility at night.

MAXimum Performance

Multi-Shot Capacity.

The patented nozzle valve permits any number of projectiles to be precharged and stored with the unit, allowing deployment of multiple projectiles in rapid succession.

ALM Barrel

Designed for rugged use in land-based and maritime applications, the ALM is built to suit the missions of modern day Tactical and Special Forces units. The ALM housing is cast from 356-T6 Aluminum for the best weight-to-strength ratio.

Folding StockFolding Stock

A folding stock is designed for greater accuracy of deployment and serves as a convenient carry handle in the collapsed position.

Standard Line Projectile

The Standard Line Projectile will throw a variety of payloads including line, rope, or ascending ladders of differing length. The delivery distance depends on the service pressure of the projectile and the type of line used.

High Pressure Projectile

The service pressure for the HP Projectile is 4,500 psi. The additional volume and pressure adds about twice the range capability as the Standard Line Projectile.

Climbing Grappling Hook

Fabricated from titanium, this three-pronged hook is dipped in EFEX to reduce signature noise and is certified for climbing.

Climbing Grappling Hook with Barbed Tines

Fabricated from titanium, this three-pronged hook comes complete with barbed tips to ensure anchoring. The hook is dipped in EFEX to reduce the sound signature and is certified for climbing. 


A variety of lines and payloads can be deployed using the ALM Launcher. Climbing lines are supplied in black and have standard diameters of 5.5 mm, 7.0 mm, 8.4 mm, and 11.0 mm. Custom ropes are available upon request. Tactical Ladders are part of the standard product offering and are described in detail to the right. The Running Gear Entanglement System (RGES) SF40 Payload can be deployed as a less-than-lethal option for boat-stopping.

Tactical Ladder

Lightweight, durable, and acoustically covert! Constructed of nylon webbing with fiberglass rungs at 12 in /30 cm o.c., this ladder is available in 50 ft /15 m lengths that can be fully deployed vertically. Side members have a combined breaking strength of 4,800 lbs / 2,180 kg. 

* Custom lengths are available upon request.

Streamline Filler Hose

The Streamline Filler Hose is used to deliver compressed air from a high-pressure air compressor, an SCBA tank, or a SCUBA tank to a projectile. This provides the "charge" for the projectile. Please ensure that your Streamline Filler Hose is equipped properly for your source of compressed air.

ALM Tool Kit

ALM Tool comes with each of the standard ALM Kits and provides all the tools needed for operational maintenance of the ALM.

Kit Carry Bag

The rugged Cordura fabric carry bag is designed for durability and convenience. The bag features two external and one internal zippered storage pockets, reinforced water-resistant vinyl bottom, and reflective strips.

Pelican Case"Pelican" Transport/Storage Case

An unbreakable, watertight, dust-proof, chemical-resistant, and corrosion-proof transport / storage case made of Ultra Impact structural copolymer. May be adapted to fasten to the rail of a vessel.
