Improvised Explosive Devices
F.Q.T.3 - Holistic capability-centric approach to C-IED operations.
|All Working Groups were asked to answer the following question during their 1-2010 meetings: “Within the terms of reference of your Working Group and following the C-IED core functions as described in L.27.R, what could be the likely contribution to C-IED operations in your domain?” In this document you will find the summary and recommendations made by Working Group TANGO, followed by the different contributions of the Working Groups; thus, the perspective of study L.27.R will be enlarged holistically.|
L.27.R - INTELLIGENCE SUPPORT TO C-IED (COUNTER IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES) OPERATIONS.
|FINABEL countries have felt the need to carry out a study representing a doctrinal reference point to counter the threat posed by IED, as proved by the often lethal attacks waged against the contingents of Finabel countries during the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.|
|The aim of this study is to examine the Intelligence support to C-IED operations, in order to improve Finabel land forces effectiveness during future military operations. The study, after describing the critical aspects of IED threat (device and system) and emerging adversary TTP, will examine the intelligence support to define areas to counter the threat and to enhance the skills which Finabel countries should improve at operational / tactical levels within a multinational context. At the same time, the characteristics of IED, when containing CBRN agents, are taken in consideration.|
