    C-IED Schoolhouse Story 3 of 5 SHORT Version 2:07



    Audio by Rick Haverinen 

    Joint Base Langley-Eustis

    The improvised explosive device is a principal concern for U.S. and partner nation forces operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Department of Defense continues to polish counter-IED training to combat the threat. Military instruction experts say live training is most effective, so we’ll visit situational training lanes at Fort A. P. Hill; but simulation is also a valuable learning tool. Plus we’ll see how real-life battle incidents become training simulations at the Joint Training Counter-IED Operations Integration Center.

    Rick Haverinen has the story.

    The next story in the series goes from counter-IED instruction in the classroom to a sophisticated simulator employing a Humvee mounted on computer-programmed hydraulic shocks and two-hundred-sixty degree projection. The simulator goes nowhere, but virtually takes vehicle crew members through the Afghan countryside where they learn to spot potential problems.
