Predict: thorough and continuous intelligence analysis is required to develop and maintain a comprehensive understanding of all parts of the IED systems, including the identification of any developments in IED technology and tactics.
Prevent: once gained, the commander must feed the understanding achieved in prediction into the targeting process and thus employ his resources efficiently to interdict the nodes and linkages of the IED system.
Detect: it is unlikely that even the most effective preventative activities will totally thwart the adversary from employing any IEDs. A crucial activity, therefore, is the detection of IEDs after they have been emplaced.
Neutralize: when an IED emplacement has not been prevented, it is necessary to neutralize the device so that friendly forces and the local population can operate safely in and around the emplacement site without it detonating. Neutralization may be either temporary or permanent.
Mitigate: when the predict, prevent and detect KOAs fail to prevent the adversary from detonating his IED, it is still important to be able to minimize the effects of the resulting blast. The mitigate KOA will include technical, tactical and information activities.
Exploit: C-IED exploitation is the process by which scenes, events and associated physical materials are recorded and analyzed in order to understand IED thread modus operandi, device capabilities and perpetrator relationships. Exploitation can take place at any stage within the IED system but every effort should be made to carry out exploitation as early as possible in the IED system event chain.
