Explosive science to save lives

Realistic explosive science and detection training gives military personnel the tools to save lives when they encounter explosive devices in the field. During Homemade Explosives (HME) training courses at Los Alamos National Laboratory, technicians from the Navy, Marines, and Air Force focus on world-wide HME threats including the safety, sensitivity, and performance of these explosives and their synthesis and manufacturing. In this photograph, Bryce Tappan (right) of High Explosives Science and Technology ignites a small amount of explosive material during the latest Advanced Homemade Explosives course for military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) personnel at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
