CIRCUIT BOARD CONSTRUCTION/THEORY (5 DAY) 40hrs
HIGH VOLTAGE, PIC PROGRAMMING, ADVANCED PIC – SENSOR INTEGRATION, ETC.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have the knowledge, skills and abilities to:
- Improve the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of a Bomb Squad responding to an IED incident
- Enhance in-house training by enabling the Bomb Squad to comprehend device designs from different sources and exploit those designs in order to produce more realistic training aids
This course reveals why modern electronics offer the terrorist a huge range of options for device design and construction. Assuming no previous knowledge of electronics, this course provides a practical comprehension of devices such as collapsing circuits (traditional and solid state), modification of commercial technologies for use in IEDs and RCIEDs, including DTMF and other coding systems. The course begins with an outline of electrical theory and Ohm’s Law, followed by an introduction to a wide variety of electronic components. Emphasis is placed on the characteristics of electronic components and circuits which make them attractive to the terrorist and those that cause training devices to fail. The minimum possible theory is presented with most of the work being practical, hands-on, circuit building.
