Point One has been awarded the training contract at Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NSEOD) on Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, to provide Joint Service EOD with homemade explosives (HME) training for the next five years.
Point One HME Training for EOD Operators who will encounter energetics and HME during their career is an absolute must to stay one step ahead of the threat. Fully understanding the risks and tool options is critical when improvised explosive devices contain HME or when EOD technicians must eliminate hazards associated with HME. Our homemade explosives training allows each operator the opportunity to handle and manufacture the various types of HME used by terrorists and criminals today and is delivered with safety and risk mitigation at the forefront through proven processes and safe practices.
We are known throughout the community for our quality of training, having trained thousands of operators over the past many years, and this award will ensure even more operators will have the best and safest HME training possible for many more to come. This is a big win for Point One and the larger EOD community!
To Team Point One—thanks to each of you who helped us put this proposal together, and thanks to our group of subject matter experts composed of former EOD operators, PhD-lead scientists, the technical support staff, and all who help teach and prepare this subject matter to keep our operators trained and ready. Team Point One collectively earned this award based on what we have accomplished together over the past decade. BZ to everyone on our team and the hard work you put in each and every day!
