Technology in Action
Innovative Tools, Techniques, and Technologies
We integrate the latest technologies and best-practice techniques into our munitions response solutions. Our preferred technologies include advanced geographic classification, digital geophysical mapping of ERW, robotics, drones, and incineration. These tools—which help our professionals detect, characterize, and remediate sites affected by military munitions—increase predictability, improve safety, and reduce costs.

Restoring Cancer Treatment in Iraq
Caliburn explosive ordnance experts found more than 50 devices as they helped clear a safe path through an explosives-contaminated building to gain access to two of Iraq’s four radiation therapy machines. The loss of the technology had been devastating to cancer patients throughout Iraq. The cancer hospital, located in the city of Ramadi, had suffered damage from ISIS’s efforts to raze it. The recovery of the radiation therapy machines doubled Iraq’s ability to fight cancer using this technology.

Range Cleanup Saves Lives
Caliburn completed a five-year mission clearing ordnance from 62 now-closed U.S.-operated ranges in Afghanistan. The mission included removing unexploded ordnance and ammunition both on the surface and in the subsurface of the ranges. The removal of the unexploded ordnance denied insurgents the chance to gather unexploded content and use it in IEDs targeting U.S. service members. It also improved the safety of the civilian population. As part of the project, Caliburn hired and trained workers from local communities for each worksite.
