USBTA be located just outside the gates of the NSWC, and it plans to partner with the nearby CSM Velocity Center, a collaborative learning space for innovation that supports workforce development and economic growth in Southern Maryland. USBTA expects to host 8 to 12 events a year.

He said the biggest gaps they have found are technology-driven, so the organization works with bomb technicians to apply their skills to available technology.
