The Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency is a combat support organization of the U.S. Department of Defense organization under the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) that deals with improvised threats such as the improvised explosive device (IEDs). JIDO was born from the Joint IED Defeat Organization established in 2006, which focused on IEDs. JIDO's mission is to "enable Department of Defense actions to counter improvised threats with tactical responsiveness and anticipatory acquisition in support of combatant commanders' efforts to prepare for, and adapt to, battlefield surprise."
