Description

Unexploded ordnance (UXO) - including improvised explosive devices (IEDs), mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) - is a pervasive threat to military forces and civilians alike. Military explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) experts are trained to counter explosive hazards; they keep their skills sharp at training events such as Exercise Tricrab, happening now in Guam. EOD technicians from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States are teaming up to disable UXO - both on land and at sea.
