Maj. Gen. Julie Bentz: JIDA Leverages ‘Community of Action’ to Combat Adaptive Threats

1 min read

PentagonThe renamed Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency is adopting a “community of action approach” to counter adaptive threats, C4ISR & Networks reported Tuesday.

Maj. Gen. Julie Bentz, acting director of JIDA, told the publication the agency seeks innovation and collaborations with industry, foreign governments, coalition forces, interagency partners and academia amid budget constraints.

Amber Corrin writes Bentz defined the concepts of “improved threat” and “non-explosive improvised threats” to the publication in an effort to define JIDA’s mission.

Improvised, non-explosive threats can be the use of any unmanned aerial systems and precision-guided weapons by adversaries to carry out terrorist attacks, Bentz said.

JIDA is a combat support agency formerly known as the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization and operates under the purview of the defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics.
