Improvised Explosive Devices, the war of the invisible bombs

More than half the casualties among the NATO forces in Afghanistan in 2011 were caused by improvised explosive devices (IED)?.  This is also the case for one in three Afghans killed last year?.  In 2010, NATO adopted an action plan on counter-IED(C-IED) aimed at increasing the detection and neutralization of such devices, as well as the dismantling of the networks that manufacture them. The NATO C3 Agency (NC3A) is responsible for developing those advanced technologies to combat IEDs.
