IAP Worldwide Services has a long history of meeting the needs of the U.S. military. Recently, it was enlisted in the Air Force’s Contract Augmentation program for contractors. Panama City-based Readiness Management Support(RMS), a subsidiary of IAP WorldWide Services, was selected to play the role of lead architect on a special project. The Kabul Air Control Center needed a new air traffic control system built that would be able to handle the demands of Operation Enduring Freedom. Specifically, it required a system that could handle positive control, non-radar detection, and had a visual flight rule and instrument-based flight rule system integrated into it. The air zone where the air traffic control system was built is known as the Kabul Flight Information Region.
IAP Worldwide Services has been relied on by the U.S. military on many occasions because of its ability to provide a wide spectrum of services to it. It is classified as a premier government contractor that operates under the leadership of Al Neffgen, IAP Worldwide Services’ CEO. The company specializes its talents in the areas of logistics and procurement, military base maintenance, contingency support, and technical services. It has projects that are active all over the world and corporate offices in Washington D.C., Panama City, and Irmo, S.C. to coordinate the activity. For the construction of the air traffic control system as well as auxiliary facilities across Afghanistan IAP Worldwide Services placed a team of highly skilled engineers and personnel trainers on the ground to work hand in hand with the Air Force and the local Afghan Government on a daily basis.
The Kabul Air Control Center is anticipated to handle one of the busiest air-spaces in the world and it can do so because of the expert system and personnel training performed by IAP Worldwide Services. IAP Worldwide Services can provide rapid response in support of the military wherever it chooses to deploy across the world and can come up with original schematics to handle ongoing operations. For the project in Kabul, IAP was asked to innovate a new class of airway design to meet the unique needs of Operation Enduring Freedom. It was tasked with delivering, installing, and maintaining the necessary communication systems as well. One of RMS’s subcontractors, ManTech Telecommunications, was tasked with traveling to 4 remote locations in Afghanistan to install facilities to support the air traffic control system’s operations. IAP Worldwide staff and handle any task even if there is danger involved.
