JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. – Airmen with the 87th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit partnered with the Innovation Lab here to streamline the process of making more realistic training ordnance. “The delay from ordnance hitting the battlespace to us being able to get a commercially relevant, readily available product is a slow process,” said Tech. Sgt. Christopher Tolley, 87th CES/EOD technician. “And even when it does exist, it’s prohibitively expensive.”
The Innovation Lab provided valuable skills and resources to support EOD with their effort to make more realistic training aids within a cost-effective and timely manner.
