March 17-23 was a busy week in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the Shadow Warrior and Global Response Force Expos demonstrating the latest equipment for soldiers and DA civilians.
The Shadow Warrior Expo that took place on March 19-21 focused on tactical communications equipment, whereas the Global Response Force Expo on March 20-21 had a broader concentration, focusing on equipment for a range of missions. DHS Systems was present at both expos to discuss the variety of equipment available through its DRASH line to help the warfighter meet multi-mission challenges.
Over 500 soldiers and the department of the army civilians gathered to see the latest in tactical communications technology at Shadow Warrior Expo. This year’s event had great command emphasis from not only the 112th Signal Command but also Forscom, US – ASOC and XVIII Airborne Corps. Senior officers and NCOs from all commands came through to see the new tactical communications technology available to them.
DHS has a line of Deployable Command and Control Equipment (DC2E) designed to simplify information collection, management anddissemination on the battlefield. Combining DC2E with DRASH shelters offers a robust solution to tactical communications, keeping equipment shielded and operational in a range of environments.
"This was most definitely a great event," said Mike Pendergast, DHS business development representative. "Each year this show just gets better and better. I can’t wait to see what next year brings."
Approximately 200 soldiers and DA civilians attended the Global Response Force Expo. The event gave Ft. Bragg’s Forscom, US – ASOC, and XVIII Airborne Corps a chance to see new equipment relevant to their worldwide missions. DHS offers DRASH systems that support a range of missions including disaster response, consequence management, humanitarian assistance, homeland security and many more.
"The GRF was a homerun for DRASH because we were able to speak with customers who have plenty of experience using DRASH. DHS attended the Global Response Force Expo and Shadow Warrior Expo in Ft. Bragg and love the product," said Jeff Lindstrom, DHS business development representative. "We received a lot of solid feedback and plan to use that feedback to enhance our products even further."
DRASH Shelter Systems have been in use by both military and civilian agencies around the world for more than 25 years. DRASH’s versatility enables users to form shelter solutions for a diverse range of applications.
