ELO#9: Emerging Technologies
The course will cover how different IED component and threats will respond in a material discrimination image to include organics, inorganic, and metals. The course is a mixture of classroom and hands on training and is 8 hours long. The course requires that you have an x-ray unit with the material discrimination capability (Dual energy). This course will not cover RSP's and will only focus on interpreting x-ray images for IED threats in cluttered backgrounds. Course is 8 hours and is a mixture of classroom and hands on training. We also provide a additional day of scenario based training that focuses on materials imaging.
Each scenario the teams will use their own x-ray equipment to work the problem. each x-ray problem provides a different challenge and helps the teams understand their systems capabilities and limitations better
STUDENT REQUIREMENTS: Must be familiar with basic portable x-ray operation and have some training on IED components and how they look in x-ray.
EQUIPMENT: Must have access to unit’s x-ray system for hand on and practical exercises. We can bring ours if your unit does not have a system that can-do material discrimination.
TESTING: Written test
CERTIFICATE: Certificate of Training for EOD Portable Materials Discrimination X-ray Interpretation
