Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Special Operations Forces provide EOD Command and Control and tactical capabilities to support Naval Special Warfare Squadrons and U.S. Army Special Operation Force (SOF) Groups.
EOD support requirements and missions are functionally organized to locate, identify, and mitigate or render-safe ordnance or associated hazards and threats that impede dominant maneuver.
The U.S. Navy has announced intentions to negotiate an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity type contract for Advanced EOD Special Operator Courses (AESOC).
The contractor shall provide eight AESOC courses to educate and train EOD personnel in the following subjects:
- Advanced electronics
- Circuit diagnostics
- Detonator defeat
- Manual access techniques
- Intrusion Detection System (IDS) Recognition and Defeat
- Hostage handling
- Immediate EOD actions
- Precision disruption
- X-ray techniques
- Sensitive Site Exploitation in combat environments
- Home Made Explosive identification
- Category A and Special Operations EOD threat assessment
- Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) operations
The Navy expects a turn-key three-week Course of Instruction. Training will be ordered as needed and will be held at off-base locations and do not require any type of on-boarding, CAC card access or transitioning.
The resulting contract will consist of a one base year and four option years, for a potential total of five years.
