11The JIEDDO battle course project is designed to train Marines to identify and defeat Improvised Explosive Devices. The project consisted of three training sites; extensive roadway improvements, a Range Support Facility; as well as Communication Lines and Fiber Optic Cable connection to Camp Wilson.
he three sites were developed to simulate foreign villages with a two-lane roadway into each site. A total of 86 building sites were graded and the CMU courtyard walls were built to support combat exercises and bodily impacts during training exercises. Additional features included a mock traffic signal, 60 Photovoltaic street lights, a generator, tunnels, and a mock pedestrian overpass.
