EOD & C-IED Conference

Explosive Ordnance Disposal & Counter IED 2015

IED's are no longer the sole preserve of the battlefield. The proliferation and dissemination of IED's mean that, not just military forces, but humanitarian organisations, peacekeepers and development agencies need to develop effective C-IED capability.

EOD & C-IED 2015 brings together leading stakeholders from military, humanitarian and governmental organisations to move towards an effective, coherent and coordinated international approach to developing EOD & C-IED capability.

EOD & CIED 2015 highlights include:

  • Uniting military and humanitarian forces to tackle the EOD and IED threat as one
  • Region specific focus including Africa & the Middle East
  • In depth discussion over transitioning from the need to know to the need to share
  • Debates over the latest technological advances in forensics and exploitation
