COMPLETE Standard Ordnance Training Set (SOTS)
The SOTS includes 10 instructional aids which demonstrate the major mechanisms commonly found in ordnance fuzing. Instead of replicating specific fuzes, SOTS fuze models embody critical educational concepts which are designed to maximize instructional value. In addition to the individual items listed here, a comprehensive set of instructor materials accompanies each set which includes animations, videos, PowerPoint and suggested classroom exercises.

The SOTS set is delivered in the highest quality ruggedized packaging to ensure the contents are delivered unharmed to even the most challenging field training locations. The PelicanTM StormCaseTM measures 62x50x29.7cm; which is compliant with most international airline carrier’s maximum luggage dimensions thereby avoiding excess baggage charges . Within the case, each training aid is cradled securely in custom-cut foam and is accompanied by both paper and electronic instructor resources.
The Standard Ordnance Training Set (SOTS) is a component of the Advanced Ordnance Teaching Materials (AOTM) Program, a collaborative design initiative catalyzed by the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation and faculty from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Startup funding for the AOTM program was provided by the U.S. Department of State, Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement, with the express purpose of improving the quality of training materials available to humanitarian EOD/mine action operators worldwide.
Sales of AOTM products are used to create additional resources for the humanitarian EOD/mine-action community and ensure the long-term availability of training materials.
