XTECH Explosive Decontamination Incorporated provides Military Munitions Response for the remediation of former and active military sites and ordnance. We specialize in the management and the hands-on execution of unique projects relating to Unexploded Ordnance (UXO), Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) and Ordnance & Explosive Waste (OEW).

XTECH’s organizational capacity is capable of responding to projects requiring varied levels of resources; the quality of our personnel is integral to our ability to mobilize teams responsive to the size and complexity of the task.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT, QC & SAFETY: Our Project Management experience is successful for both on-site and remote or virtual management applications.

Our team has a 25 year legacy of high-quality work done safely, and an ongoing mandate to perform as an industry-leader in the performance and completion of work.

HAZ-EX SYSTEM: Our armoured excavator is designed to remediate munitions related waste sites in a safe and efficient manner. An industry first, XTECH’s ballistically armoured Catepillar 315B is fully converted to biofuel for environmentally responsible operations in sensitive terrain or near-shore aquatic situations. The system can be deployed in stand-alone or integrated configurations. In stand-alone configuration, our armoured excavator provides targeted removal requirements. It supplements manual efforts in situations such as rocky or frozen ground, ice or near-shore, or for at-depth requirements, Integrated with additional heavy equipment, the mechanical screening haz-ex system provides safe operations for pit clearances or extensive below surface contamination. The haz-ex system has been deployed to solve UXO-specific challenges as well as to support safe environmental or archaeological investigations within UXO impacted lands.

DATA SYSTEMS: XTECH utilizes a Geographic Information System (GIS) platform with fully integrated Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) data collection capabilities which permits us to track and verify all stages of development throughout the project life. Our GPS and GIS expertise ensures that project-specific requirements are met with fully customized systems development. XTECH's expertise in electromagnetic data collection technologies is garnered from years of practical experience in challenging environments, in large-scale data collection and for sampling and assessment purposes.
