The EOD 9 bomb suit and helmet ensemble has been designed with direct input from bomb disposal technicians to provide the highest degree of modular protection and operational flexibility for EOD and CBRN missions. The Med-Eng EOD 9 platform can be configured in the field by EOD or IEDD technicians based on the suspected presence of a CBRN agent in an IED.
At least 14 types of testing have been performed to validate the performance of the EOD 9, including extensive live-blast testing.
The Med-Eng EOD 9 bomb suit includes a Jacket, Integrated Groin Protector, Trousers and Boot Covers for integrated blast protection against IEDs and bombs. The system is stored in a rugged bag for storage in bomb squad response vehicles.
The helmet is only an additional $15,000. How much for some gloves?
