Washington, DC, September 11, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Today, Improvised Explosive threats are global, enduring and spreading. The IED has profoundly changed the military formation order of battle, leveling the playing field between an asymmetric enemy and U.S. / Coalition forces both on land and sea. In the Homeland, the threat has never been greater. Attacking the malicious use of explosives in the battlefield or at home depends upon a well-coordinated, all-of-nation, whole-of-government effort.
From terrorists, insurgents or criminal sub-networks, IEDs are constantly changing. Adversaries are modifying the explosives, switches and how they are emplaced. Global access to defeat technology and resources are necessary to attack the enemy & defeat the threat.
The 2015 EOD/IED & Countermine Symposium brings together a whole-of-government approach with both military and civil offices, key leaders in industry with the sole objective of advancing the mission critical needs of each respective community in IED defeat.
DSI’s EOD/IED & Countermine Symposium fosters the dialogue to bridge the gaps, assess policies, plans, and programs for priorities between industry and the EOD/IED & Countermine community.
