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 ENRR 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 7th annual ENRR.
