Abstract:

The Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) was established in February 2006 as a joint activity to "focus (lead, advocate, coordinate) all Department of Defense action in support of the Combatant Commanders' and their respective Joint Task Forces' efforts to defeat improvised explosive devices (IED) as weapons of strategic influence" (Department of Defense 2006). To better understand and ultimately defeat adversary IED use against U.S. and coalition forces, JIEDDO sought information from scientific and technical activities overseen by the Joint IED Test Board, individual DoD Components, and other U.S. Government departments and agencies.
