My organization is currently supporting energetic design/production efforts. This includes energetics formulation/synthesis, live component disassembly, surveillance, accelerated aging, and small-scale sensitivity testing. We also support other programs through the DoD, DoJ, and DHS. These can include improvised/homemade explosives, explosives detection and render safe operations. One of the most interesting parts of my position is that I get detailed hands-on experience with an extensive variety of explosive components and materials. I also find my personal training and support of our military EOD and law enforcement personnel especially gratifying.
