Collect, store and analyse the EOD operational lessons learned and trend analyses. These tasks are aimed to support NATO and national efforts for adapting EOD capabilities in various aspects such as doctrine, techniques, tactics, procedures, training, equipment, Command and Control (C2).
Maintain a technical library, to include an accessible web-based electronic library of ordnance and related EOD procedures. To this end the COE will act as a portal seeking and establishing links to other appropriate EOD web-sites.
While specific EOD procedures remain a national responsibility, the COE will serve as a multi-national hub for information sharing and comparison. It will perform information management in conjunction with the proposed EOD Database.
