Furthermore, IDS provides Special Operations Forces (SOF) training to our nation’s most elite warfighters, such as Special Forces (SF), Civil Affairs (CA), Psychological Operations (PSYOP), and Rangers. Our SMEs are veteran soldiers whose backgrounds include the requisite SF, CA, PSYOP, CIA, JSOC, and military intelligence experience necessary to bring strategic aspects and expertise to SOF training.
Cyber & Social Media Training
IDS Social Media SMEs and Digital Teams build and manage websites, blogs, and social media, networks, trends, and posts that replicate an immersive real-world Internet at the Brigade Combat Team (BCT) and Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF) levels. Our SMEs provide highly specialized and operationally relevant digital simulations of operating within the complex, non-traditional capabilities and requirements of the digital domain. Our teams are responsible for building content, managing curriculums, and developing scenarios and scripts for digital engagement at the BCT, ARCYBER, and Special Operations Task Force (SOTF) levels. We build and manage a robust custom environment of real-time Decisive Action (DA) injects, websites, bios, cyber TTPs, tweets, pictures, videos, propaganda, and digital network traffic.
