Route Reconnaissance and Clearance Operator's Course (R2C2-O)
Introduction: Route Clearance (RC) is the detection, investigation, marking, reporting, and neutralization of Explosive Hazards (EH) and other obstacles along a defined route to enable Assured Mobility for the maneuver commander. It is a combined arms operation that relies on a reconnaissance of the route to be cleared. This course provides operators the individual and collective knowledge and skills required to conduct route reconnaissance and clearance operations with standard Route Clearance Equipment (RCE). Students are taught to understand the EH threat, route reconnaissance, and enemy TTPs.
Concept: Structured as a 10-day (80-hour) training event, the course qualifies students on vehicle operation, recovery, component change, mine detection capability and HMDS. The Buffalo/RG track combine to train operators in COTS enablers such as Arm/spork interrogation, Roller operations, VOSS camera.
Explosive Hazards Tracking Course
The EHTC provides an overview and instructs students in the use of ArcGIS geospatial software and automated data analysis, using Microsoft Excel, to track explosive hazards such as UXOs, IEDs, and landmines. The class is focused towards units that will be performing C-IED missions to ensure battlefield awareness. This allows maneuver elements freedom of movement, ensures maximum efficiency and provides a measure of safety to military elements engaged on the battlefield. The course will train Soldiers of all arms, throughout Joint Forces Commands (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard), with priority given to training operators in units deploying with the Explosive Hazards Coordination Cell (EHCC) mission.
