Abstract:

As we continue to address the improvised explosive device threats of today, we must simultaneously prepare for tomorrows counter-IED and counter-threat network effort by institutionalizing the knowledge, capabilities, and experience we have amassed during the last decade. Building upon hard-earned lessons learned, this Counter-IED Strategic Plan extends the focus beyond current operations and establishes an azimuth for the development of future and enduring counter-IED capabilities. The mission to disrupt the transnational threat networks employing IEDs, and to defeat the IED itself, requires a comprehensive and seamless effort supported across all levels of our government. This threat must be met with a whole-of-government approach that integrates efforts and leverages the combined authorities and capabilities of all interagency partners. While we are never going to stop all IEDs, a holistic, decisive, whole-of-government approach will significantly impact the effect the IED has in future operations and to our domestic security. The IED threat and the networks that employ them will endure -- they are here to stay. This compelling threat requires us to maintain constant vigilance, an enduring counter-threat network, and counter-IED capabilities. This Strategic Plan contains the following sections Strategic Vision, Mission, Assumptions, Strategic Environment -- The Current and Enduring Threat, Meeting the IED Challenge, Goals and Objectives, Future C-IED Research and Development Requirements, and Conclusion.
