Washington, DC, June 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- DSI’s EOD/IED & Countermine Symposium is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders and key policy-makers across military and civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions and debate. The symposium’s overall theme will focus on fostering whole-of-government approach to the IED threat, improving guidance on EOD reporting and messaging, and training the military and civilian force.
Over the past ten years, continuous IED combat operations have enhanced available technology and training to adapt to the new evolution of threats. Response tactics have also improved to achieve mission success. However, in the persistent conflicts to come for generations mines and IEDs will be the weapon of choice, both domestically and in future contingency operations.
DSI’s EOD/IED & Countermine Symposium will bridge the gaps and assess policies, plans, programs priorities between industry and the EOD/IED/Countermine military community.
The Symposium features the most relevant offices and thought leaders for the EOD/IED and Countermine community including:
Thomas P Dee - Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Expeditionary Programs & Logistics Management) Research, Development & Acquisition
COL (ret) Dick A. Larry - Senior Advisor, EOD/CIED and Exploitation HQDA G3/5/7
CAPT Brad McKinney - Commanding Officer, Center for EOD and Diving
Edwin A. Bundy, Ph.D. - Program Manager, CBRNE, C-IED, Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office
