Senior Airman Jared Basham, 9th Civil Engineer Squadron ordnance disposal technician, controls a Micro Tactical Ground Robot to search for a buried training explosive device at Beale Air Force Base, California, July 28, 2017. EOD Airmen use remote controlled robots to neutralize explosives while at a safe distance. Small robot advances safety and capability for EOD
An explosive ordnance disposal technician looks in the direction of improvised explosive device he was dispatched to neutralize. Staged just outside the danger zone, he prepares to approach the IED, but instead of donning a forest green, explosive resistant bomb suit, he reaches into a backpack and pulls out a small remote controlled robot. Operating robots to defuse explosive threats is a regular and often first line option used by EOD Airmen to ensure safety. But when the location of the device is inaccessible to larger, bulky robots, Airmen don bomb suits to complete the mission.
