EOD get a new one of a kind robot!
The custom robot will support Eglin’s Test and Training Complex missions. This robotic system gives EOD technicians the ability to recover and dismantle munitions, which is key in aiding test engineers in weapons development.
Eglin’s EOD unit is the only EOD unit in the Air Force with a test mission directive. They must have the capability to remotely remove weapon fuzes and data packages from live munitions to support the research, development, test and evaluation conducted here.

#ICYMI
Two new satellite pharmacy modifications make it easier for customers to put in and pick up their medication prescriptions.

To put in prescriptions, there’s now a 24/7 messaging service. Customers can activate their electronic prescription from anywhere now and the medication will be ready within 48 hours at the satellite pharmacy. Prescriptions aren’t automatically filled upon receipt here. The customer must take action to begin the prescription-filling process. The pharmacy will only call customers/patients if there is a problem with the prescription. There will not be a call informing customers the prescription is ready. The messaging service phone number is 850-883-8441.

To pick up prescriptions, the satellite pharmacy will open its drive-through service on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. This service is for picking up medication only, no other service will be available during this time, according to pharmacy staff. The new Saturday drive-through hours begin May 5.

Congratulations to this EOD Airman!
Maj. Kelly Mattie, EOD flight commander, recently won a 2017 Air Force Materiel Command annual award in the field grade officer category.

“It was very surprising to receive the award,” he said. “It is truly an honor, but all due credit goes to the great EOD team at Eglin and the hard work they do every day to support the mission," said Mattie.

When the call to respond to a suspicious package or any unexploded ordnance found here goes out, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight team is always ready.
