    Ordnance (EO), Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and Unexploded
    Ordnance (UXO) that are located in the Canadian territory or
    that are found abroad on deployed operations and posing a threat
    to Canadian and Allied Forces.  Rendering-safe procedures
    require the use of specialized tools, including visual
    recognition equipment like borescope systems, to discretely
    penetrate otherwise inaccessible environments to view suspicious
    objects or packages without disturbing them.  At that point it
    may be possible to safely determine their nature, internal
    structure and composition, and the best approach to neutralize
    Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) specialists will use the
    digital video borescope system inside buildings, structures, and
    vehicles in the field, to help view and analyze the interior of
    otherwise inaccessible areas for suspicious or explosive threat
    objects. Given the nature of the operations on which the CF's
    EOD teams will deploy, the equipment shall be reliable, robust,
    compact, light-weight and function in semi-protected harsh
