Thank you for your interest in the Bomb Arson Tracking System (BATS). BATS is restricted to United States law enforcement and public safety agencies who are involved in the investigation of crimes involving fire and/or explosives within the United States and its territories. The International Bomb Data Center Working Group (IBDCWG) is a collaborative body of bomb data centers and recognized government agencies focused on the efficient and effective sharing of technical intelligence on explosives as well as other information related to the unlawful use of explosives. This allows participants to share information on bombs and other explosives through a state-of-the-art communications portal known as the IBDCWG Portal. Should you require additional information, please contact your respective country’s bomb data center.
