Second JDEAL reaches FOC
The second Joint Deployable Exploitation and Analysis Laboratory (JDEAL) recently delivered to its new home in Soesterberg, the Netherlands, has now reached Full Operational Capability (FOC), the European Defence Agency (EDA) announced on 9 June.
The declaration of FOC follows the successful completion of testing.
With this, the two deployable capabilities under the EDA’s JDEAL project are now ready for deployment by request from member states. The two deployable laboratories, housed at the JDEAL training facility in Soesterberg, are tools for improving the fight against improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
The second new laboratory is based on mission essential equipment and comes with a lighter housing version than the first one.
The laboratory provides deployable capabilities covering the entire spectrum of technical IED exploitation, including the recording and analysis of information related to events, scenes, technical components, and material used in IED attacks.
