The Explosive Ordnance Disposal Suit, also known as the EOD Suit, is a heavy body armor designed to withstand bomb debris, explosive overpressure, impact, heat, and flame. Unlike normal body armor, which only needs to protect the torso and head, EOD suits must protect all parts of the body because the danger caused by a bomb explosion affects the whole body.
The kits typically include a high-strength fiber helmet to protect against debris at speeds exceeding 683 m/s, a communications system, a cooling system, and a large number of steel plates and thick layers of Kevlar fabric kits. In order to minimize weight and increase flexibility, various levels of protection are provided for body parts depending on the sensitivity to the wound.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians have comprehensive and unconventional explosives expertise to ensure the safe disposal of explosive weapons. They are ready to respond to any type of weapon and to warn of potential threats. They also receive specialized training in the handling of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.
Whether wearing bomb suits or using advanced robotic technology to perform missions, (EOD) technicians devote their precious lives to performing tasks critical to the safety of civilians or their fellow citizens.
