Expeditionary Sensitive Site Exploitation Training (SSE)

Tactical Electronics’ (5 day) Expeditionary Sensitive Site Exploitation Training provides a foundational SSE curriculum: SSE team organization, responsibilities, and preparation. Additionally, attendees will be introduced to human battlefield biometrics collection TTPs to include the collection of both latent fingerprints and DNA. Attendees will learn and master fundamental SSE TTPs, learn a myriad of sampling and collection skills, and learn how to effectively function as a member of a site exploitation team. Instruction includes lectures, demonstration, hands-on realistic interactive situational training exercises (STXs).

Tactical Electronics’ (10 day) Advanced Expeditionary Sensitive Site Exploitation Training provides an expanded SSE curriculum that includes a scientifically sound but practical introduction to Biological Weapons, Chemical Weapons, Homemade Explosives (HME), and exploitation of facilities associated with the same. Attendees will become familiar with manufacturing processes, the precursors, and pathways most likely to be encountered, and perform sensitive site exploitation during situational training exercises (STXs). This methodology provides students with the ability to practice and gain confidence sampling actual materials, analyzing actual samples with unit instrumentation, and recognizing those production processes most relevant to their mission in a safe learning environment. Instruction includes lecture, demonstration, hands-on, intense and realistic full mission profile interactive STXs.
