SWAT Interoperability

SWAT Interoperability

The EOD/SWAT Interoperability Course is an intensive 40-hour course based on real world operational experience and proven methods. This hands on approach is designed to prepare operators to understand and respect both the ballistic and IED threat while developing a skill set to operate in a Counter IED environment safely and effectively.

Threat Overview and Assessment

Understanding the current threat is key to preparing to mitigate it. We will discuss trends and challenges we face today and will face in the future. Proven methods and techniques developed and practiced both in the US and abroad will be shared to properly prepare operators for the Counter IED mission.

Tools & Technology

Some of the most advanced technology available today will be demonstrated and or discussed relative to Counter IED missions. A highly trained operator armed with the appropriate gear is not only a more effective operator but a force multiplier as well. Micro UGV’s (Unmanned Ground Vehicles) and dismounted kit will be demonstrated to assist in the enhancement of each operator’s capabilities.

Counter IED Threats & Tactical Movements

Swat operators will become familiar with basic explosives knowledge and the IED threat. EOD operators will develop rapid threat assessment skills and practice Fast Action Hand Entry Techniques developed by our Israeli operators and practiced successfully here in the US on operations including the “Boston Marathon Attack”.

High Stress Operational Scenarios

To properly prepare one must train as you fight. Standing around wondering what to do is not an option in the real world and will not be an option here. OPS15 will push operators through stress-induced scenarios that will simulate those faced on real world operations. Failure is not an option so we will crawl before we walk, but make no mistake, we will be running by day 5.
