CIED ground appreciation

#1
Thinking about MATT 9, what are the main points to consider when doing a ground appreciation?

For example ground sign, absence of the normal, etc.

Is there a trusty mnemonic?

Is there any particular order in which the various points should be covered?

Thanks

I suspect that the ability to think and plan ahead are very important. That's probably a good starting point for you to work on.

Is there no one in your unit who knows, IEDS and counter measures are constantly developing.

There are a couple of mnemonics for in CIED, consider them in conjunction with route recce.

The mnemonic for CIED clearing is HEWS

Hands clasped over ears
Eyes tightly shut
Walk slowly forward
Stamping feet in the approved manner

You'll know when you detect one.
