Response and Defeat Operations Support in 100 Seconds

This 100 second video provides an overview of the Response and Defeat Operations Support (REDOPS), an integrated program to develop safer and more efficient countermeasures for bomb squads. REDOPS’ three-pronged approach combines assessing emerging technologies, expanding robotic capabilities, and upgrading existing tools and protective systems (e.g., exploring the integration of self-contained breathing apparatuses into bomb suits). REDOPS draws on expertise from all levels and regions of the improvised explosive device (IED) response community.
