Remotely-Operated Vehicle Underwater Hazardous Device Search Course

Wayne Stoner, Senior Program Manager – Maritime Security, A-T Solutions, Inc.

To keep pace with the constantly changing threats to national and international maritime critical infrastructure, we must be able to identify and understand the underwater hazardous device (UHD) terrorist threat. By learning to use remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs) effectively, law enforcement and first responders can rapidly assess and mitigate an UHD event without placing a diver in the water or unnecessarily tagging out a ship.

The mobile design of the course brings the solution to customer facilities or operational environments. Operators can use existing ROVs or have an ROV delivered with the training. A-T Solutions instructors present the most current terrorist tactics, UHD design, construction, and deployment techniques. The course introduces participants to ROV UHD searching, reconnaissance, identification, and marking. Training emphasizes tactics, techniques, and procedures for working around and under large-vessel hulls, piers, pipelines, gas and oil platforms, and bridges. The 5-day course consists of 1 day of classroom instruction and 4 days of practical application under realistic, field exercise scenarios.
