Essential Radio Communications

  • Essential Radio Communications lays the foundation for OPERATORS to effectively communicate and relay critical information. ALL OPERATORS will find their teams engaged in situations where critical threat and hazard information MUST be relayed to Tactical Operations Centers (TOC/TACOPS). This involves internal asset and resource deployment within THE COMPANY and/or coordinating with other joint and partner forces. Ultimately, the relay of this information WILL occur using radio communications. Therefore, it is imperative that ALL OPERATORS within THE COMPANY receive training to effectively communicate across radios. Essential Radio Communications is structured to provide this foundation through ATAC Global’s Computer Based Training (CBT), classroom, and field-based exercises that build on ATAC Global’s Land Navigation course. After this course, OPERATORS are trained across multiple scenarios to fall-in and effectively report conditions and engagements as they evolve.

Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Primer

  • The Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Primer lays the foundation for OPERATORS understand GEOINT Products derived from the analysis of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets and payloads. In today’s age of high-tech warfare, OPERATORS are often briefed with Intelligence Products derived from ISR assets, but may not fully understand what’s being briefed to them. This course provides OPERATORS with a structured overview of advanced, commercial, geospatial technologies used to create GEOINT Products including Satellite and Aerial Imagery, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), Thermal Infrared (TIR), Full Motion Video (FMV), and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS). More importantly, this course provides OPERATORS with the knowledge to ask THE RIGHT questions during Intelligence Briefings to support mission objectives for THE COMPANY.

Country/Regional Studies

  • ATAC Global’s Country and Regional Studies provide contextual awareness to OPERATORS prior to deployment. Country and Regional Studies provides OPERATORS with critical information about their deployment location in the form of customs, demographics, transportation, political structure, culture, religion, and geopolitics. This broad overview is complemented with a detailed snapshot of current events distilled from news media, as well as a threat and hazard assessment regarding details of their initial travel itinerary to the deployment location.

Information Security (INFOSEC) Primer

  • The Information Security (INFOSEC) Primer provides OPERATORS with training to prepare them to handle sensitive information while working for THE COMPANY. In today’s digital age, INFOSEC is constantly in the headlines, as information is leaked, information systems are hacked, and company assets are lost and mishandled, The INFOSEC Primer provides all OPERATORS with training on handling this information in an appropriate and secure manner to protect THE COMPANY. Throughout the INFOSEC Primer OPERATORS will receive training on rules and regulations, information systems security, password management, encryption, incident reporting/incident handling, and physical security protocols.
