Munitions Response & Demilitarization Services
Acuity specializes in military munitions response, mine action, and demilitarization services. We use controlled processes to make munitions, ammunition, and weapons safe and unusable – even if they fall into the wrong hands.
Our teams have more than 30 years of experience and work in some of the most demanding environments around the world. In fact, they’ve cleared more than 1.2 billion square meters of explosive hazard-containing areas in more than 30 countries.
We support customers like the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, foreign governments and militaries, and humanitarian and commercial organizations. We address unique challenges associated with munitions response and demilitarization services, including clearance and remediation of explosive hazards, and associated environmental concerns. Our personnel has experience working in a variety of site conditions, including terrestrial and underwater, urban, and austere locations.

TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION
Innovative Tools, Techniques, and Technologies
Acuity integrates the latest technologies and best practice techniques into our munitions response and demilitarization services. Our preferred technologies include advanced geographic classification, digital geophysical mapping of explosive remnants of war (ERW), robotics, drones, and incineration. These tools help our professionals detect, characterize, and remediate sites affected by military munitions. They increase predictability, improve safety, and reduce costs.

Restoring Cancer Treatment in Iraq
Acuity’s explosive ordnance experts found more than 50 devices in an explosive-contaminated hospital housing two of Iraq’s four radiation therapy machines. The cancer hospital, located in Ramadi, had suffered damage from ISIS’s efforts to raze it.
The team cleared a safe path through the building, allowing doctors to safely access the machines. They restored access to technology that was essential to the well-being of patients, effectively doubling Iraq’s ability to treat and fight cancer.

Range Cleanup Saves Lives
Acuity completed a five-year mission clearing ordnance from 62 now-closed U.S.-operated ranges in the Middle East. The mission included removing unexploded ordnance and ammunition on the surface and subsurface of the ranges. Acuity hired and trained workers from local communities to assist in munitions response at each work site.
The removal of the unexploded ordnance denied insurgents the chance to gather unexploded content and use improvised explosive devices (IEDs) targeting U.S. service members. It also improved the safety of the civilian population.
