After nearly two decades of ground wars in the Middle East, the Navy’s explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) community is rolling out a new strategy. The new Navy EOD Strategic Vision 2030 will encompass modernizing the way the EOD mans, trains and equips its force to leverage new technology and lessons learned from the past two decades. The vision: “better position the force under National Defense Strategy with an eye towards high-end conflict.” The last strategic vision was March of 1997, and many know what has happened since, such as 9/11 and 17-years of combat operations. The EOD must learn from that and evolve. Two of the missions of this strategic vision include: (1) supporting the fleet, primarily though Expeditionary Mine Countermeausres (ExMCM) companies that enable freedom to navigate in maritime environment; (2) and supporting the joint force in its counter-weapons of mass destruction mission, primarily through special operations force (SOF) platoons.
