Golden West Mobile Cutting System utilized during Cambodian UXO calls

On March 10th 2015, the EHP (Explosive Harvesting Program) CMAC EOD operators responded to a UXO call at a construction site just outside the capital city of Phnom Penh, during which they recovered a 500 pound bomb. In a separate UXO call eight days later the CMAC Dive Team and EHP CMAC EOD operators responded to a call for a 1000 pound bomb found in a stream in the Kratie province. Directly following excavation, the fuze sections of the bombs were removed using the Mobile Cutting System developed by Golden West. The defused bombs were then transported to the USDoS PM/WRA funded Explosive Harvesting Site where the explosive filler will be recycled into humanitarian charges to be using in demining operations across Cambodia.
