This workshop will gather experts and delegates from different backgrounds within the military and the industry sector, from the United States, Canada and other European nations, with a focus on Lessons learned from the theatre and putting them into action for a successful deployment in Afghanistan. This event will highlight the differences in IED attacks between Iraq and Afghanistan and the structure of the enemy’s network for constructing and fielding IEDs.

Technology focus
- De-confliction of ECM
- Emerging Standoff Detection and Disruption technology
- Role of Biometrics and Forensics Science
- Training & War Gaming Technology
- Development of Laser-based Technologies for Standoff Detection
- Detection systems using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Technology
- The future role of UAVs in Airborne C-IED
In addition this event will include displays and exhibits, of some of the emerging technologies in the fight against IEDs.

Training Workshops
• Weapons Intelligence, Team Operations and Planning
Mission: To provide C-IED operators and commanders with the practical skills required to accurately gather evidence and intelligence at the scene of an IED incident as well as its subsequent collation, assessment and dissemination for use in wider anti-terrorism operations.

• Assault IEDD Support to Hostage Rescue and Counter-Suicide Bomber Operations
Assault IEDD is a highly specialised skills-set enabling selected operators to rapidly assess and neutralise access-denial and body-borne IED’s during land-based, aviation and maritime interdiction operations. Assault IEDD differs from generic IEDD in that the overriding aim of the operator is to maintain the momentum of the assault in a hostile (non-permissive) environment by facilitating the assaulters reaching their objective safely, rapidly and with minimum risk of compromise.
