The Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory (MCWL) Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Division (C-IED Div) leads, advocates, and coordinates all counter-IED (C-IED) efforts in the Marine Corps in order to defeat IED networks and their associated devices.
C-IED’s vision is to reduce the effective use of IEDs to the point they no longer remain a weapon of strategic influence.
The division is working aggressively to find, develop, test, and rapidly deliver emerging C-IED capabilities to Marine Corps forces for current and future operations. C-IED assists the operating forces in identifying C-IED capability gaps and developing plans for materiel and non-materiel solutions for those gaps. The division also evaluates emerging capabilities, training, and technologies and develops transition strategies that support the needs of the Marine Corps.
