The Counter-IED report is a subscription-based journal produced by Delta Business Media intended to act as a source for specialist information on IEDs.
As well as the print journal, it also maintains a website which advertises relevant events, republishes IED-related news stories and produces company profiles of businesses working to produce counter-IED equipment, allowing them to advertise their products.
A typical edition of the C-IED Report contains articles by military and security professionals and by representatives of businesses attempting to sell their products. Whilst a useful resource, the C-IED report focuses primarily on military and commercial angles, and typically provides companies with an open platform to advertise their products without reviews or secondary input.
This profile is part of AOAV’s investigation into counter-IED (C-IED) actors around the globe. To see the list of all C-IED actors recorded by AOAV, see here. To see those engaged in the Middle East, the Sahel, North Africa or other highly impacted countries please see here, here, here, and here respectively. This research was made possible by funding from the NATO Counter Improvised Explosive Devices Centre of Excellence (C-IED COE).
