This free app shows how an IED is constructed and how it functions. Included is free access to IEDs within the IED data-base. 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 Data-base 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.
Regular updates and customer contributions will ensure this is as up to date and a continually developing application. From within the app by befriending the CAT-IED Facebook page individuals can be part of the Collective Awareness to IED group and have up to the minute news and feeds on IEDs as they happen.
So whether considering, travelling to, or actually in a country with an IED problem individuals can be better informed and aware about the problems of IEDs and what to do in an IED situation.
