AbstractAccording to the Iraq Study Group, US Forces must continue to support Iraq to prevent the government from falling and being influenced by neighboring countries (Syria and Iran) and to prevent a propaganda coupe for Al Qaeda and the spread of radical Islam. Our soldiers, marines, and sailors are regularly subject to IED attacks by Shi'a militia, Sunni insurgents, and Al Qaeda. Improvised explosive devices (IED) are the weapon of choice for such adversaries, because they require a relatively small investment in proportion to their lethality. As each successive generation of device increases in lethality, as techniques for emplacements evolve, and as organizational and financial structures for IED attacks harden, prevention of IED attacks requires increasingly sophisticated U.S. countermeasures, To meet this need, 21st Century Technologies (21CT) proposes SENTRY, an application for modeling, simulation, and counter-measure strategy generation to target and disrupt asymmetric threat networks that plan and execute IED attacks.
