This 'Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Awareness' application aims to introduce individuals to the risks when travelling to countries with an IED threat. By better understanding IEDs, how they function and being able to identify where IEDs might be found will help prevent further injury and death caused by IEDs throughout the world every day.
This free app shows how an IED is constructed and how it functions. Included is free access to IEDs within the IED database. This allows individuals to have a better understanding of what an IED visually looks like on the ground. The additional awareness training allows individuals to see how to avoid IEDs and how to respond if you think you are in an IED incident.
For specific details on IEDs access to the IED Database allows viewing of the ‘IEDs by Type’ and the varying IEDs being used today. Also included is the ‘Terrorist Groups by Country’ section which provides an insight into the Terrorist Groups within a country and the IEDs they may have used, or be using today.
Regular updates and customer contributions will ensure this is as up to date as possible and a continually developing awareness application.
The news feed section provides real-time up to the minute news and feeds on IED incidents as they happen.
