The 412th Test Wing uses the PIRA to conduct weapons and payload drops for flight tests. The EOD routinely checks for UXO around Edwards and also responds to calls from all over the Southern California area. Once UXO has been rendered safe for transportation, EOD will conduct demolition operations to properly dispose of UXOs.
