A Northrop-Grumman Remotec Andros F-6A robot remotely operated by members of the 5th Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal, makes its initial approach to a simulated improvised explosive device during an exercise here June 6. The Andros F-6A is used by 5th CES EOD personnel to recon areas not cleared for human entry and disarming potential explosive devices. Exercises like these are vital training tools used throughout the year to ensure wing personnel are trained to provide safe, secure, effective conventional and nuclear operations as mandated by Air Force Global Strike Command.
