Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)

Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians locate, identify, render safe and dispose of all forms of ordnance (conventional, nuclear, chemical, biological, military, and improvised) both U.S. and foreign made. Parachute or Helicopter insertion and deep-sea diving capabilities are sometimes necessary to perform this mission. In addition to working closely with other military services, EOD technicians occasionally assist civillian law enforcement agencies.

Duties performed by EOD include:
  • Perform render safe procedures on any type of ordnance involved in an accident/incident, or in an unsafe condition;
  • Perform render safe procedures to improvised explosive devices;
  • Conduct demolition of hazardous munitions, pyrotechnics, and retrograde explosives using detonation and burning techniques;

  • Support military and civilian law enforcement agencies.
Working Environment
EOD technicians perform duties in a wide range of locations, such as at
remote areas, aboard aircraft carriers, at ordnance-capable military
stations and in all water conditions. They are exposed to various climates
and weather conditions. Their missions take them to all environments,
every climate, in every part of the world. Navy EOD Technicians have
many assets available to arrive to their mission, from closed-circuit scuba
and surface-supplied diving rigs, to parachuting and insertion from
fixed and rotary aircraft, to small boats and tracked vehicles.
These highly individuals comprise approximately 0.2% of the Navy.
EOD Technicians operate on 5 to 12 person teams. Missions vary
widely and cover the entire world in every ocean and sea.

This course is physically and mentally demanding, but the individual who accepts the challenges is rewarded with extra pay for diving, parachuting and demolition plus extraordinary duty assignments.
