Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) have become the weapon of choice of adversaries and this phenomenon is likely to continue for decades. IEDs are fabricated in an improvised manner and designed to destroy property or incapacitate people and vehicles. The design of IEDs and the trigger systems used range from the ‘simple’ to the technologically developed. The production costs in general are low, and the components used include military ammunition like mines or artillery shells as well as freely available chemical components that can be combined to make explosives. Although already used for many decades in civil wars and conflicts worldwide, the casualties caused by IEDs have a cumulative campaign effect and their use is key for terrorists, resistance movements and rogue elements in their fight against technologically superior forces. In Iraq and Afghanistan they have caused the majority of fatalities and casualties of international troops. (European Defense Agency).
