The Town of Indian Head location will be a site for applied research, associates, and manufacturing beginning to work on previously agreed upon projects with the Navy. A former CVS Pharmacy on Route 210 in Indian Head has been redeveloped into their bomb disposal and technology training campus.

In May of 2022, the United States Bomb Technician Association (USBTA) established its headquarters in the recently renovated Maryland Technology Center building, a former shopping center in the Town of Indian Head. The membership organization plans to grow education and technology with regard to eliminating threats from improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

The Town of Indian Head location will be a site for applied research and training for local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

USBTA is a membership organization with members from Homeland Security, the FBI, and many law enforcement agencies.  USBTA is located just outside the gates of the NSWC and is a the nearby partner of the 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.

Sean Dennis, president and CEO, said the organization was founded with the premise of filling gaps in the community for military and public safety. 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.
