Two Edged System For Handling Explosives & Mines
The focus of our Explosive Ordnance Disposal Teams is two-fold. The first, is to locate, detect, identify and dispose all types of explosive ordnance, both conventional and unconventional, improvised, chemical, and to include Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Our Teams have had extensive training and “hands on” experience in locating, identification, neutralizing, and recovery (or disposal) of foreign and domestic ordnance in the form of either land or underwater devises. We generally conduct demolition of hazardous munitions, pyrotechnics, and retrograde explosives using detonation and burning techniques. All of our Team members have been deployed and fully integrated with the various branches of the armed forces, both domestic and foreign. Including the Navy Seals, and various other warfare units within the Navy, Marine Corps, and Army. Our Teams have also been called upon to support and train foreign military and civilian law enforcement agencies.
The second, is training local personnel in the skills of ordnance recovery and disposal. The EOD training curriculum starts with a demanding, multi-week course focusing on physical conditioning and basic aquatics. Training includes emergency medicine, aquatic adaptability, familiarization with safety equipment, and diving academics. The local candidates will be required to demonstrate proficiency and comfort in the water during underwater swims, knot tying, mask/snorkel use, and scuba familiarization. Comfort in and respect for the water is a must. Every candidate will then attend an additional multi-week training session, learning to identify, handle, and dispose of various types of explosives and devises.
After completion of this phase of training the candidates are graded on their individual skill levels and are classified into one of three areas:
- Assigned To A Specific Team Position
- Assigned For Further Training (General)
The candidates assigned to a specific Team position will attend an additional training cycle in their area of responsibility, such as:
- Air Ordinance - Focuses on bombs and missiles.
- Underwater Ordinance - Focuses on torpedoes and other underwater explosives as well as underwater search techniques.
- Improvised Explosive Devices - Includes remote detonated bombs and other “homemade” type devices.
Each one of these training cycles teaches the candidate how to make safe to transport or dispose of that type of ordinance."
The candidate’s assigned to further training (General) will report to the Support/Administration department. There the candidates will attend an extended training cycle in such areas as:
- Vehicle maintenance and operation (Specifically armored road vehicles, small boats both rigid hull and rubber boats)
- Tactical communications and G.P.S. (satellite and high frequency)
- Remote-controlled equipment (robots, listening devices, cameras)
- Detection equipment operation and maintenance (Hand held sweeping devices, laser guided devices, and infrared).
We have opportunities for more advanced training for candidates who qualify in areas such as: language interpreters, “hard hat” salvage diving, radiologists, heavy equipment operators, and other technical positions.
