Initial Planning Conference Bison Counter 2020
Further to previous Bison Counter Exercises in 2013 and 2016, Italy will host the EDA Counter Improvised Explosive Devices Joint and Combined Multinational Live Exercise (LIVEX) “Bison Counter (BC20)”. The exercise will take place in Sardinia Island’s Training Areas from 8 to 25 May 2020
The aim of BC20 will be to apply the C-IED concept and C-IED enablers with a deployed multinational C-IED Task Force in a constantly evolving operational environment. Among other objectives, BC20 will cover aspects of the full C-IED cycle and threats, trends and related functions including military search, technical exploitation, EOD and IED Disposal, etc., as well as the intelligence and operations interface in a real, multi-dimension land/maritime & air scenario.
An Initial Planning Conference was held in Italy, to set up the basis of the exercise where one C-IED COE delegated subject matter expert assisted and advised the planning process.
