71st Ordnance Group soldier uses existing equipment to create rapid deployment tactical command system


FORT CARSON, Colorado – A Soldier from the Fort Carson, Colorado-based 71st Ordnance Group (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) developed a rapid deployment command and control system that reduces the time required to deploy to hotspots around the world.

Cpl. Kobie R. Roemisch created the Mobile Expedient Tactical Operations Center kit (MET-K) with equipment that was already available in the group.

“I was sitting down in the office one day when we noticed we had some old equipment lying around we didn’t use in the green boxes,” said Roemisch, a Bedford, Texas, native who has always had an interest in engineering and figuring out how things work.
