Ft. Leonard Wood, MO; April 28, 2016: 1Prospect Technologies, LLC (1Prospect) received award notice for the Ft. Leonard Wood, MO U.S. Army Engineer School Counter Explosive Hazards Center (CEHC) Mine Detection Dog (MDD) Instruction contract. This contract is to provide the technical, tactical, and training support services required to sustain the MDD course. The U.S. Army Engineer School established the Combat Engineer MDD Handler Course to train dog teams to support Engineer explosive hazard detection operations. 1Prospect will instruct the Combat Engineer MDD Handler Course in conjunction with providing training support services. Quality instruction and execution of training is a time-consuming, laborious process that requires continuous (before, during, and after) planning and oversight. The training implementation and execution requirements of the course require instructors fully trained and qualified to instruct dogs in explosive odor recognition and proper indication/reaction upon recognition, and to train Soldier students to handle the MDD in a variety of Army operational explosive detection missions. 1Prospect will teach the student and dog teams and ensure they have the ability to perform area clearance, route clearance, and casualty extraction and mine rescue missions in a military operational environment.
