Mark your calendars, the United States Bomb Technician Association (USBTA), is happy to announce its 2021 Technology Training Event (TTE) schedule. Each event is supported by a host bomb squad, industry, and other government partners such as the Battle Lab Division at Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head (NSWC IHD).
Battle Lab Division is a new concept of operations at NSWC IHD to meet EOD equipment needs. Its goal is to leverage existing organization Subject Matter Expertise, industry and government partnerships, and EOD community involvement to assess equipment options, and provide actionable data and feedback, informing equipment buying decisions.
The USBTA’s TTEs are three-day (24 hours) events that bring bomb technicians (military and public safety) and Counter-IED industry together to employ current, and emerging, technology using challenging, realistic, hands-on scenarios. These scenarios are designed to challenge the bomb technicians and explore the limits of C-IED technology.
These events are free to attend and participants are not required to bring team or individual, equipment.
The USBTA could not offer these events without the support of our gracious host bomb squads.
