Indian Head, Maryland, – Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division’s (NSWC IHD) Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Department conducted its third annual EOD Threat Expo at the Stump Neck Annex, April 13-15. The threat expo is the second in a series of events supporting the Joint EOD (JEOD) program’s planning cycle.
The first event was a threat assessment in February, where the JEOD program virtually brought together over 145 participants across 51 organizations, including the intelligence community, operational EOD forces, Department of Defense and other government agencies. The event’s purpose was to examine threats that EOD operators may encounter during missions.
Using a variety of intelligence sources, reports and operational plans, teams worked together to identify the current top threats across a variety of warfighting domains and EOD mission sets. These threats were then prioritized and be used as inputs for the threat expo.
