CoBRA Contract Awarded

Great news! Last Friday, Threat Management Group, along with our teaming partner, Pioneer Technologies Corporation (PTC), was notified that we were awarded the USAF EOD Pre-Deployment Support contract through the USAF’s CAAS IV Contracting Vehicle. This is a very important development in TMG’s proud history of providing pre-deployment combat readiness training to our USAF EOD brothers and sisters. This three year contract will position a joint TMG / PTC team of cadre at the USAF’s Silver Flag training site at Tyndall AFB, FL — integrating existing CoBRA program objectives with evolving battlefield readiness doctrine. This is our second “win” with PTC as a new strategic partner as they assisted us with securing the continuation of our USAF Security Forces’ Regional Training Center, Counter-IED Training Integrator contract, another three year effort supporting our nation’s men and women as they prepare for combat!
