The suicide IED is one of the most dangerous and effective weapon systems facing civilized societies today. Suicide IEDs have become the terrorists’ preferred weapon of choice. They are inexpensive, relatively easy to produce, difficult to counter and have a palpable risk/reward ratio for the terrorist. As seen in contemporary conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, IED attacks can also have a destabilizing and destructive effect on deployed forces engaged in coalition stability operations and nation-building efforts. Crucially, they present a significant threat to bomb squads and CT planners both in the homeland and on deployed operations. In particular, the threat from suicide bombers presents a significant challenge in terms of tactics, techniques and procedures, as well as wider policy and equipment procurement issues.
The Counter Suicide Bomber course is the direct product of experience and expertise in combating and minimizing the threat of IEDs to operational forces as well as to the civilian population. The methods and tactics taught in this course have been developed and perfected over many years through countless wartime combat and counterterrorist operations. The course introduces IED operators and tactical commanders to a range of overt and covert techniques used in the rapid assessment and neutralization of suicide devices, encountered during hostage rescue and counter-suicide bomber operations, both in the homeland and on combat operations.
