Blast Distance Calculator

The Blast Distance Calculator can be used to calculate the recommended minimum distance to evacuate when presented with a suspicious package or bomb threat. Anyone in the area should seek distance and cover - those are the best means to reduce injury.


  • The user should select threat by explosive weight together, or by IED threat type. The calculated results are meant to conform to published threat cards.
  • Building evacuation advisory: All personnel must either seek shelter inside a building (with some risk within the calculated distance) away from windows and exterior walls, or move beyond the outdoor evacuation distance (outside the calculated threat distance).
  • Outdoor evacuation advisory: Preferred area (beyond the calculated distance) for evacuation of people in buildings and mandatory for people outdoors.


Explosive Profiles

The Explosive Profiles pages provide an overview, analysis, and trends, associated images, and when available, relevant threat source material. Related content is provided for each Explosive Profile for ease of navigation and information gathering. Explosive Profiles provide in-depth information about significant incidents involving IEDs, explosives, precursor materials, homemade explosives (HME), actual devices, and device components.


OBP Event Map

The OBP Event Map is an interactive mapping tool which provides a monthly release of various OBP Program Events. Please log in and contact the Regional Training Coordinator listed for details about the OBP events listed.


Domestic IED Incident Map

The Domestic IED Incident Map is a monthly-updated product which compiles data on explosive-related incidents through the U.S. and utilizes a mapping system to provide an Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) map with pins which correspond with domestic incidents. The user can search incidents within their community which have occurred since 2011. The mapping feature can geolocate IED-related events to a high degree of precision, often within tens of meters.
