ENRR Stakeholders

Pushing Technology To The Limits

The use of advanced robotics in public safety and military bomb squad communities has grown significantly over the past few decades. As technology increases, bomb technicians need to better understand capabilities and limitations of these systems in order to align industry research and development (R&D) with needs of responders based on real world applications. The National Robot Rodeo (NRR) brings together experienced operators from military and public safety bomb squads to evaluate new and emerging robotic capabilities in real world operating environments. In partnership, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC); the Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, Office for Bombing Prevention (DHS CISA OBP); the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division (NSWC IHD), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), and the United Kingdom Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (UK-Dstl) is sponsoring the 5th annual NRR.

National Robot Rodeo in the Media

The ENRR exposes active members of military and public safety bomb squads to new products and technology, while providing real-time feedback (i.e., as part of an Operational Evaluation) to event facilitators sponsors and supporting vendors. Dr. John Olive, Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Subject Matter Expert said “The ENRR allows us to identify potential operational requirement gaps through challenging, real world scenarios, and provides exposure to available robotic technologies.” This multi-agency event provides an opportunity for participants to network with other bomb technicians and exchange information on tactics, techniques, and procedures.
