    Preface This manual focuses on EOD techniques which have either been developed or changed significantly over the past 11 years. Modularity has created exponential growth of EOD forces in an extremely short amount of time. Rules of allocation for EOD companies have continually changed to adapt to the current fight and ensure that EOD forces remain relevant. This publication provides Army EOD the opportunity to capture into a single document the most successful techniques available to perform EOD tasks and effectively complete missions.

    ATP 4-32 is a sole source documented explanation of EOD
