Abstract

The deployment of the first troops a new Area of Operations following a conflict, creates a significant logistical problem, and the lack of adequate infrastructure for the settlement of these forces leads, sometimes, to use existing infrastructure for operational purposes. The need to protect the military servicemen, in face of plausible improvised explosive device threats is of utmost importance. This brings the need to assess the extent of the expected damage and to evaluate the level of threat as well the protection standard needed.
