Preparing Domestic and International Forces to Defeat IED Threats and Neutralize Insurgent Networks

Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are makeshift weapons that range from small pipe bombs filled with military grade C4 explosives to hundred pound fertilizer road mines. Counter IEDs have been the thorn on the military’s side for years. Regardless of the amount of solutions created, money invested, or targets neutralized; IEDs simply continue to be the leading cause of casualties in the Middle East.

IDGA’s 9th Counter-IED Training Forum will provide a unique and intimate opportunity to focus on the pertinent aspects of this tremendous issue.  This event will bring together the most influential and knowledgeable counter-IED experts, in order to discuss the future measures and strategies for protecting troops and civilians at home and around the world.

The complexity and the scale of countering IED’s encompasses many different strategies, technologies and methods of training.  Being able to defeat the device while simultaneously attacking the network is absolutely essential in the prevention of IED related casualties and attacks.

With the 9th Annual Counter-IED Training Forum, we look to take a deeper focus and expose the serious issues concerning the future of counter IED organizations and the preservation of the tactics and strategies gained through a decade of war.  Exploring the latest in technology and innovation will help to drive discussions about the future of counter-IED security  and the next generation of CIED training discipline.
