Thursday, April 14, four members of the EOD Company, 9th ESB came to Kubasaki to demonstrate the use of robotics in explosive ordinance disposal. The focus for the visit to our Robotics Engineering class was the latest generation robotic unit that our EOD specialists can use to approach unknown dangers and to defuse (literally) dangerous situations. Students were given the opportunity to interact with the specialists, ask about what the career field is like and also “drive” the robot using the remote controller.
Our thanks to the following specialists who took time out of their schedule to drive down from Camp Hansen, Sgt Orkiszewski, Sgt Jeronimo, Sgt Bagdonas, and Sgt Carrington. Special mention to MSgt Bercot, Operations Chief for the EOD Company.
