Abstract : The theme of this symposium, modernizing to meet new threats, seeks to bring this new strategic direction to the forefront of our discussions between the military, industry, and academia. We hope to explore where the Services EOD forces are going, both Jointly and singly, and what are their current and future requirements. To that end we have front loaded requirements briefings from the Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Agency (JIDO), and three of the four Services. Its important to continue a strong dialog between the Services requirements developers and industry partners to ensure industry can skate to where the puck is going to be. Likewise, requirements developers need to understand the current state of technology to appropriately shape their requests for proposal.
