A team of Federal Bureau of Investigation special agents conducted a homemade explosive device joint training exercise for military working dog handlers, explosive ordnance disposal members and bomb technicians at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, March 22, 2019.
Service members from the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy took part in the specialized peroxide scents training that focuses on triacetone triperoxide, hexamethylene triperoxide diamine and urea nitrate.
“What makes these improvised explosives especially dangerous is that the materials can be found in household items,” said Special Agent Mike Freeman, FBI training and bomb technician coordinator. “This training is unique because these scents are too sensitive and dangerous to just have sitting around. Only an FBI bomb technician can provide and handle the raw material used in this training.”
