Upcoming Trainings for Bomb Technicians

Operation Remember the Alamo is a three-day training event that connects active bomb technicians with equipment manufactures for the purpose of exploring new technology and enhancing critical bomb disposal skills.  Bomb Technicians will be assigned teams, and after a short demonstration about a particular piece of equipment, the team will use the equipment in a scenario-based training exercise.

Feedback about the equipment is a critical component of USBTA’s Technology Training Events.  By provided manufactures feedback from the end-users, bomb technicians have a direct hand in modifying, enhancing, and/or developing new tools.

The USBTA and its Industry Partners strive to bring the latest technologies to these events.  Some equipment is commercially available, while other equipment may still be in a prototype phase.  Typical equipment involved in a USBTA TTE are: robotics, radiography, rigging, explosive detection equipment, new energetic tools, explosive containment vessels, and much more.

Operation Remember the Alamo, like all USBTA events is 100% free to our members.

Not a member of the USBTA?  Join now (www.usbta.us/membership).  Membership is FREE to both active and former bomb technicians (military and/or public safety).

RECON Component ID & XTK 3

 

This presentation will cover the basics of using the RECON component ID training resources (https://xtk-recon.sandia.gov). 

RECON was developed by CTTSO and Sandia National Laboratories, and is freely available to all certified bomb technicians to help improve x-ray interpretation and component identification skills. 

We will also cover basic usage of XTK 3 and demonstrate the integration between XTK 3 and the RECON site. 

TTE West Sacramento, CA
April 20-22, 2021

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
