All kit and training materials will be provided and retained by the students at the end of the course. Expect to complete this challenging course with materials to go back and train your unit. We will ship your kit back to your unit for you.
Tuition must be paid in advance of course. Tuition is for one student.
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
- Design and build training device PCBs with Eagle CAD
- Read and understand schematic diagrams
- Solder/ Assemble PCBs
- Troubleshoot PCBs and Devices using the 6 Step Troubleshooting Method
- Understand and construct a high voltage fire set
- Integrate sensors into micro-controller based designs
- Integrate various COTS RF Modules with a PIC Circuit
- Build a drop system for releasing ordnance from a UAS
This IED Electronics training course reveals why modern electronics offer the terrorist a huge range of options for device design and construction. 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, micro-controller programming, and CAD drawing.
