The Ongoing Need for Expert Counter Explosive Ordnance

The Ongoing Need for Expert Counter Explosive Ordnance

Due to the many long-lasting and ongoing conflicts around the world, there is still a great need for expert counter explosive ordnance assistance.

There is still a large threat posed by hidden explosive ordnance in all sorts of different landscapes and terrain that have experienced conflicts, and even when the conflicts have been resolved, there will still be a threat to public life and safety by the remaining remnants of war.

When the lands within former war zones are liberated and released back to the local authorities, and before any public access or work can be carried out on these areas, such as farming or house building the local government, along with military assistance or law enforcement agencies, will need to have the ability to counter the risks posed by hidden threats such as:

  • Unexploded Explosive Ordnance (UXO)
  • Landmines
  • Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) 
  • and other Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) 

This is extensive and specialist work that requires a partnership between local government agencies and land clearance experts such as ourselves that design, build, test and supply cutting-edge tools, machinery and equipment specifically for dealing with these situations.

The main purpose of land clearance activities is to defeat the known and suspected hidden devices in the area. These actions then allow for the freedom to operate safely in the area and deliver the wider aims of the clearance operation, but ultimately it is to help save lives.

By removing the risks posed by these hidden explosive devices you are protecting the local population from harm as well as delivering the physical security needed for the military and local government agencies to enact their economic plans for the area. 

Countering future explosive ordnance threats

Armtrac has an ongoing research and development programme that works at the cutting edge of design and engineering. Our R&D programme is tasked with developing our future capabilities in tackling the ongoing challenges that new and more sophisticated explosive ordnance devices bring. 

We focus our attention on learning about potential new explosive ordnance threats and how to counter them, innovative new unmanned vehicle design, the design and testing of new experimental tools and machine accessories, and more!

The intelligence we gather from working in the field delivers us with new understanding and enables us to work on the development of new technical and tactical solutions to help detect and eliminate explosive devices and to mitigate their effects.

Working with Armtrac

While the majority of counter explosive ordnance work is undertaken by local governments in cooperation with the military, law enforcement agencies and financial institutions or charities, this work does involve working in partnership with providers such as Armtrac who can deliver a comprehensive approach with others and a solution to countering these threats at ground level.

It is important to source expert help such as ours, especially when dealing with the threats coming from improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Not only will be you be able to safely dispose of the explosive devices, but we can use the knowledge gained from tackling these devices to further help with our training of ground staff and land clearance vehicle operators involved in the land clearance project.
