Large Vehicle Bomb Countermeasures APP

OHI was tasked with developing and fielding an interactive electronic guide for mobile platforms (i.e., cell phone application) on the selection and use of tools and countermeasures (CMs) for Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (VBIEDs). The tool is designed for the public safety civilian law enforcement bomb disposal community and military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) users.

OHI’s subject matter experts in Counter Improvised Explosive Device (c-IED) and c-VBIED responses researched terrorist and bombing related trends and available commercial and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) tools and countermeasures for use in VBIED responses.

The application contains a logic-tree and matrix designed to guide technicians in the proper selection and use of various CMs based upon technical data about the VBIED (e.g., vehicle type, location of IED, desired response / action). The application was designed to serve as a training tool as well a decision support tool for use during actual VBIED responses.
