Philippine Bomb Data Center

The Philippines Bomb Data Center (PBDC) was created in 2005, with the aim of serving as a coordinating body to provide technical assistance, operational support, enhancement of training and strategic information on all unlawful use of explosives both domestic and international incidents. It collects, analyses, and exploits data and pieces of evidence pertaining to bomb incidents, bombs, bombers/suspects, organization, leadership, and modus operandi. As part of this work it also maintains a databank of all post blast investigation reports, technical data, photographs and pertinent documents, as these may help in future investigations and enable the continual improvement of counter-bomb/IED methods.
