Well, essentially - yes. Locate, ID, render safe. That could mean popping an IED with a .50 cal, strapping on a block of C4 w/ det on your local cache of UXOs or it could mean sitting up real close and personal to a little bitty device that has a huge boom potential and playing with some tiny wires. This can be a very simple or complicated field, depending on any given situation. One thing to remember is that it is serious work, and if you don't focus - you can get yourself and/or your teammates killed.
