Range Operations

The capability to simulate real world scenarios in order to train personnel to execute assault zone operations is an uncompromising need within the special operations community.  The execution of assault zone operations requires considerable skill and coordination.  This mission involves the release of heavy equipment, ruggedized vehicles, and thousands of paratroopers from dozens of airplanes regardless of weather conditions with the objective of landing them all within the same ground target area.  Glacier Technologies understands the criticality and complexity of this mission; therefore it employs only the most highly trained and experienced personnel to support the conduct of Assault Zone Operations.

Services: Glacier Technologies personnel assist in exercise planning, training, execution and post-event activities.  Prior to the exercise, they assist each element of the division and task force to conduct individual unit-level training as well as collective training involving all units of the division task force simultaneously.  During the exercise, Glacier personnel coordinate the execution of mission-related events with air traffic controllers, pilots (including fixed-wing and rotary aircraft), equipment managers, ground crews and paratroopers.  Following the execution of the air drop, they manage and coordinate ground activities on the drop zone to include reconstitution and the onward movement of units. 

Glacier ground personnel then evaluate the effectiveness of each exercise and provide documented reports to the customer.
