Weapons Intelligence Team Course - Operations and Planning Training
|Event Date/Time: Apr 12, 2010||End Date/Time: Apr 13, 2010|
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.
Weapons Intelligence (WI) is a pivotal function of the global war on terrorâ€™s overall intelligence effort. An understanding of the tactics, techniques and procedures â€“ including the equipment, and technical ability of a terrorist group, and its links to similar groups and individuals, is key to the defeat of terrorism. With that in mind, the MKDS Training two day Weapons Intelligence Team Operations and Planning seminar has been specifically designed to introduce delegates to a number of scenarios in the form of case studies - as well as outlining the tactics, techniques and procedures necessary to gather IED related evidence and intelligence in both the homeland and high-threat environments.
