IDS combines operational expertise with an intimate understanding of today’s greatest challenges to bring our customers the solutions required for success in a complex and multidimensional world. We tailor solutions for a diverse range of government, military, nonprofit and public-sector customers. Our outstanding past performance and continuing work built IDS’s reputation as the leading provider of training and support for complex operations.
IDS provides all management, labor; materials, equipment, security, transportation, contractor life support; and scheduled and unscheduled operations and maintenance (O&M) services in support of over 30 Afghan National Army (ANA) and Afghan National Police (ANP) sites and facilities located in provinces throughout Afghanistan. O&M services support mission critical facilities, such as power plants; wastewater treatment plants; solid waste collection and disposal; water treatment; and heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration and repair.
IDS’s Afghan National Training Program performs at multiple locations across Afghanistan, providing seminars on O&M processes and safety procedures. Our program graduates are ANA and ANP personnel who are trained, qualified, and equipped to maintain and manage critical infrastructure and facilities and protect equipment and systems that represent a substantial investment.
Via the Internet, terrorists now have a platform to reach audiences of unprecedented size to communicate, collaborate, and convince, often operating buried and undetected in the staggering volume of general online traffic. IDS’s implementation of additional capabilities through SITE will allow intelligence and IO personnel and exercise scenario developers to incorporate the unique nature and effects of online information into large-scale training exercises. Utilizing SMEIR, our proprietary cyber training environment, CTTSO SITE will provide Operations Officers the ability to create and control scenarios based on the training needs of their units and exercise objectives.
It is critical that joint exercises incorporate this facet of the battlespace for true mission success across the entire SOF enterprise and Interagency; SMEIR and SITE will do just that.
The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs utilizes the Flexible Implementation Assessment Team (FIAT) to provide local national third-party assessment of cooperative agreements, grants, host nation programs, contracts and task orders throughout all 34 provinces of Afghanistan. FIAT program activities support effective monitoring and evaluation that will continue the transition and self-sustainability of Afghan-led institutions.
IDS equips FIAT with technically trained LNs who perform assessment and oversight duties across 63 programs, including hundreds of sites in some of Afghanistan’s most non-permissive provinces. IDS recruits, trains, deploys and manages LNs who possess the skills, geographic insights, situational awareness and cultural acumen to conduct assessments throughout each Afghan province.
IDS provides specially trained open-source intelligence (OSINT) expertise, creating a real world battlefield and social media replication. SMEIR provides our warfighters with realistic training, each rotation, building their capabilities in extracting relevant OSINT. Working with OPSGRP CEMA Cell, IDS coordinates and plans cyberspace effects in the exercises. This includes OPSFOR and population activity on simulated social media and other internet activity, ensuring MSEL/scenario development is accurately portrayed within the training.
IDS prepares warfighters for the situations and domains they will encounter in real world, exposing them to the challenges they will face during military conflict. At the National Training Center, IDS provides mission support services for their critical training operations including advisory services, technical expertise, and system operators. Within our scope we deliver Interagency core support, the Leadership Training Program, Special Operations Forces training, social media replication, and replication of Human Intelligence (HUMINT) operations.
We ensure all facets of warfighter training is innovative and relevant, which is key to national defense.
