DoD Buys Counter IED Training from Allen-Vanguard

The Canadian company, Allen Vanguard, was awarded a contract for counter IED jamming equipment training according to the Canadian Press. The US DoD gave the firm a $7.5 million U.S. and three year contract for this support. U.S casualties in Iraq over the last few years were primarily from IED and the U.S military invested in a variety of counter measures. These included MRAP vehicles, jammers and more basic defenses like using UAV to identify and attack crews planting them. If the current situation in Iraq continues there will most likely be a winding down of such efforts.
