EOD Systems is a critical Force Design program within the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Electronic Warfare (EW) Ground Family of Systems (MEGFoS). It aims to enable the Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations (EABO) construct and facilitate ground-based EW in support of Force Design 2030. The program focuses on providing interconnected EW systems developed using the C4ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) and Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) standards. These systems will operate across a range of frequencies to provide the Marine Corps with the ability to maneuver efficiently inside the electromagnetic spectrum, protect friendly use of spectrum, sense all spectrum usage in an area of responsibility, and target adversaries' spectrum with the intent to deny, delay, or degrade an adversary's decision-making cycle.

Additionally, the program includes Family of EOD Equipment (FEOD), which provides tools and capabilities to detect, locate, access, identify, triage, diagnose, stabilize, render safe, neutralize, recover, exploit, and dispose of unexploded explosive ordnance, improvised explosive devices, and weapons of mass destruction. The portfolio includes specialized diagnostic equipment, robotics, and energetically actuated tools that enable EOD to provide critical enabling capabilities for special operations, crisis response, and littoral access. Furthermore, Littoral Explosive Ordnance Neutralization (LEON) is a part of this program and consists of five increments: Remotely Operated Vehicle, Unmanned Underwater Vehicle, Unmanned Surface Vessel, Amphibious Unmanned Ground Vehicle, and Dive Gear/Neutralization Tools. LEON capabilities enable the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) section to detect, locate, reacquire, render safe/neutralize, recover, exploit and dispose of underwater explosive ordnance through manned and unmanned teaming.

The program also encompasses Explosive Hazard Defeat Systems (EHDS), which provides capabilities not found in the current Joint land force structure to defeat explosive hazards and protect Marines and equipment while conducting route and area clearance operations. EHDS enables Commanders to deliberately operate in explosive hazards environments by detecting and marking explosive hazards. Additionally included is ENFIRE - a digital surveying kit designed to collect and disseminate engineer-related information while minimizing exposure to enemy observation. Stand-off Radar Imaging Detection System (SoRIDS) is also part of this program providing ground and air-based auto target recognition for surface and buried explosive items.
