Ever since Iraqi insurgents began using Improvised Explosive Devices in 2003, their deadly threat has been the primary cause of casualty for coalition troops.
Billions of dollars have been spent trying to mitigate against this threat and whole industries have sprung up to fill this massive capability gap.
Now, with the campaign in Afghanistan over ten years old and IEDs still posing a very high level of threat, NATO militaries are looking to address the challenge differently.
This conference aims to provide a platform from which to discuss how efforts to detect and defeat the device are continuing, but also to look at how ISR assets and the ordinary soldier can play a crucial role in ATTACKING THE NETWORK.
