TEDAC's 10th Anniversary

Mollie Halpern: The FBI and its partners mark the 10th anniversary of a center dedicated to ending the evolving threat of improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, made and used by terrorists.

I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week. The Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center, or TEDAC, is an interagency effort to gather intelligence about IEDs, identify their makers, and to develop countermeasures to prevent future attacks. TEDAC Director Greg Carl says bomb technicians, engineers, fingerprint examiners, and other experts have analyzed IEDs from about 30 countries…

Greg Carl: So we’re looking at what that threat is from other parts of the world and ensuring that we know what the new emerging tactics, techniques, and procedures are employed by terrorists and bomb makers so we can help protect the homeland.

Halpern: TEDAC shares its intelligence with its local counterparts.

Carl: We need to make sure that they’re aware of what the emerging threats from overseas are so that then the community can respond.

Halpern: On the same month TEDAC observes is anniversary, it marks another milestone—it acquired its 100,000th IED.

Carl: The more IEDs that we can get our hands on, the better it’s going to help us look and inform our partners on what we see the threat as being.

Halpern: More information is available on www.fbi.gov.
