XM Division of Van Aken International has more than 40 years experience in material handling and compounding. That is why we were selected by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as the commercial NESTT manufacturer.

All of our Non-Explosive Security Training and Testing products are made in our state-of-the-art facility in South Carolina. The strictly controlled processes and testing methods assure that our NESTT products are high quality and uniform.

In addition to making the NESTT materials, XM designers have developed innovative testing and training aids, and also participate in ongoing research with both government and private entities.
