The Squadron will provide a 5-man AEOD C2 team (to integrate within the Force Protection  Headquarters). The 3-man EOD teams deploy in Spartan CVR(T) fitted with Clansman (to be  replaced  with BOWMAN).
 
Force strength deployed will depend upon the threat. Additional EOD personnel are available from non-cadre EOD posts (NFU personnel). During peacetime, the Squadron fulfils Military Task 1 (UK MACP) - Improvised Explosive Device Disposal and Conventional Munitions Disposal - and conducts EOC Tasks across the UK ranging from the clearance of Air Weapon ranges and the land remediation of current MoD sites to the removal of hazard from former chemical weapon storage sites.
