Joint IED Defeat
JIEDDO was first stood up as an Army task force in 2003 to rapidly counter the threat poised by the growing number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq. IEDs had become the largest cause of casualties among U.S. troops. In 2006, the Joint IED Task Force was redesignated the Joint IED Defeat Organization under the Department of the Defense. The Secretary of the Army was designated as the DoD Executive Agent. JIEDDO has since been replaced by the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency (JIDA).
