Why You Should Attend This Summit:
- The IED has profoundly changed the military formation order of battle, leveling the playing field between an asymmetric enemy and U.S. / Coalition forces both on land and sea. In the Homeland, the threat has never been greater. Attacking the malicious use of explosives on the battlefield or at home depends upon a well-coordinated, whole-of-government effort to IED defeat.
- The 2017 EOD/IED & Countermine Symposium brings together a whole-of-government approach with both military and civil offices, as well as key leaders in industry with the sole objective of advancing the mission critical needs of each respective community in IED defeat.
- DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the EOD/IED & Countermine community, as well as key policy-makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to
bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
