Abstract : IEDs continued to be the main threat to coalition forces (CF) in both Afghanistan and Iraq. In Afghanistan, IED casualties continued at elevated seasonal cycles that began in May 2009. In Iraq, IED activity continued to decline. IEDs increased as the weapon of choice for global insurgents and terrorists with an average of more than 260 IED incidents per month outside of Afghanistan and Iraq. Device effectiveness and lethality continued to improve in diverse regions around the world supported by Government Accountability Office (GAO) recommendations, JIEDDO critically reviewed its mission statement, existing structure, and processes with the objective of enhancing clarity and streamlining processes. Early in FY 2010, the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) established the C-IED Senior Integration Group (C-SIG), charged with the mission to integrate and prioritize C-IED efforts with the goal of ensuring the right capabilities are deployed to the right theater at the right time. JIEDDO committed to rapidly field prioritized C-IED technologies in accordance with C-SIG instruction.
