Counter-Suicide Bomber Operations and Planning Training Seminar (C-IEDs & Suicide Bom)
|Event Date/Time: Sep 27, 2010||End Date/Time: Sep 28, 2010|
To introduce counter-terrorism operators and commanders to a range of overt and covert skills required to defeat suicide bombers in both permissive and hostile environments.
The suicide IED is one of the most dangerous and effective weapon systems facing civilized societies today. Suicide IEDs have become the terroristsâ€™ preferred weapon of choice. They are inexpensive, relatively easy to produce, difficult to counter and have a palpable risk/reward ratio for the terrorist. As seen in contemporary conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, IED attacks can also have a destabilizing and destructive effect on deployed forces engaged in coalition stability operations and nation-building efforts. Crucially, they present a significant threat to bomb squads and CT planners both in the homeland and on deployed operations. In particular, the threat from suicide bombers presents a significant challenge in terms of tactics, techniques and procedures, as well as wider policy and equipment procurement issues.
The MKDS Training two day Counter-Suicide Bomber Operations and Planning seminar introduces delegates to a number of scenarios in the form of case studies - as well as outlining the tactics, techniques and procedures necessary to assist operators/planners in the defeat of suicide bombers in both permissive and hostile environments.
