Explosive Ordnance Disposal & Counter IED
17-19 November 2014,
Meliá Avenida América, Madrid,
Bringing together senior international military, police forces and defence industry, from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa, EOD & CIED 2014 will offer high level discussion on the key challenges facing the CIED/EOD community and engage in debate on the strategies and new technologies available for future force development.
About the Event:
Counter IED and EOD missions were synonymous with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But as these operations draw to a close, the continuing threat of IEDs in both military and civilian landscapes makes a Counter IED and Explosive Ordnance Disposal ready force no less important. The Middle East, North Africa and South America, as well as the West are all suffering from the proliferation of these weapons as a tool of terrorism and disruption, necessitating effective future planning and training.
Those attending EOD & CIED 2014 will come away with a detailed understanding of How militaries and police forces from across Europe, North America the Middle East and Africa are approaching C-IED & EOD operations, their current capabilities and equipment and how they will be developing their force over the next five years.
The event also prides itself on providing the latest information and solutions available on the market including but not limited to detection, protection, robotic and disposal. There is of course a look ahead to see where you can expect the technology to be heading in the near future.
If you work in the military or police you may be interested to hear how other forces are approaching C-IED & EOD training, the challenges and current shortfalls they have, and what strategies they have in place to make sure they are fully ready to adapt to the continuing threat. This allows you to learn and build upon what you already have.
