Improvised Explosive Device Disposal

The use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) has only grown more prevalent in recent years. Not only to target military forces, IEDs are sometimes deployed to threaten government facilities, civilian locations, critical infrastructure, and commercial property.

Such devices must be properly disposed of to ensure the safety and well being of military, government, and law enforcement officials, as well as that of bystanders and civilians. To effectively and efficiently carry out a counter-threat solution requires an appropriately trained and equipped response, an area in which WCTS is the industry leader. Develop a high-level IEDD capability from the start or to improve an existing one.

WCTS  training is modular and can be adapted to create a course that exactly targets the customers’ requirements. This flexibility allows WCTS to design a course in line with  the students needs and missions, their available equipment, and with the existing or predetermined threats.

The training can either be equipment specific, utilizing the students in service IEDD equipment, or can be based upon a more contextualized, non-equipment specific approach.
