Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 2. Modifications made to Foundation Skills and Assessment Conditions.

Release 1. This unit was released in DEF Defence Training Package release 1.0 and meets the Standards for Training Packages.

This unit supersedes and is equivalent to DEFEO005 Conduct explosive ordnance capability analysis.

  • Unit code updated
  • Content and formatting updated to comply with the new standards
  • All PC transitioned from passive to active voice
  • Unit title changed to better reflect unit outcomes
  • PC 1.1 and 1.2 merged
  • Element 1 reworded

Application

This unit describes the skills required to undertake a technical analysis to identify the explosive capability to satisfy a requirement. The capability analysis is a process that is undertaken because of requirements identified by the customer. It involves the requirement to analyse the operational outcomes, identify the target characteristics and detail the design specifications for explosive to satisfy the explosive capability required.

This unit applies to those required to analyse an explosive capability requirement then match the requirement to known explosives or identify the capability required.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to.

Those undertaking this unit would make high level, fully independent judgements, applying a detailed knowledge of explosives, analysing complex data and producing specific documents detailing the outcomes of highly specialised technical functions. They would perform sophisticated tasks in highly specialised operational contexts.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to unit at the time of publication.
