The Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Organization (JIDO) aims to enable DoD actions to counter improvised threats with tactical responsiveness and through anticipatory, rapid acquisition in support of counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency, and other related mission areas including counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED). JIDO has made countering the emerging threat from drones as one of its primary missions. The FS/DE task order will enhance the ability of deploying joint forces to integrate capabilities, technologies, and lessons learned to defeat adversaries that employ improvised-threat weapons for strategic effect, US department of defense said in a statement Monday.

The task order provides a key component for JIDO’s mission to enable Department of Defense actions to counter improvised threats with tactical responsiveness and through anticipatory, rapid acquisition in support of combatant commands’ efforts to prepare for, and adapt to, battlefield surprise in support of counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency, and other related mission areas including counter-improvised explosive device.

Work is expected to be completed by Oct. 30, 2021.
