WHAT IS THE COUNTER-IED GROUP? 

Delivering integrated solutions based on British excellence to counter the IED threat.

Representing the UK’s Counter-IED supply chain and collaborating with Her Majesty’s Government, British Army and security forces, Counter-IED UK delivers integrated solutions to enable partners to counter the threat of IEDs.  Working in line with the NATO Doctrine stated Lines of Operation: Attack the Network, Prepare the Force and Defeat the Device and delivering a depth of operational Understanding and Intelligence, Counter-IED UK can deliver integrated solutions tailored to customer needs.

The UK Counter-IED Industrial base has earned worldwide respect through over 40 years of experience of working alongside our government colleagues to deliver capability. We understand the threats and partner with government agencies to define requirements.  We can then measure against a dynamic, UK Counter-IED database to identify system of system options, capability gaps and choice of suppliers. We listen and work with customers to analyse the threat and assess existing capability. We present options for an End to End Capability (E2EC) with a timeline for delivery and an integration plan to deliver the maximum effect.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?

Counter-IED UK exists to generate opportunities for better business for its members, in the UK and international markets.  By collaborating with relevant stakeholders in government, we secure a joint role in the planning of procurement, innovation and partnering.  We establish a strong and unified presence in the Defence and Security markets in order to maximise the branding, activity and relationships for Counter-IED UK members and the value proposition to future customers of our End to End Capabilities.
