A-T Solutions has been awarded a contract to support Nato's Resolute Support Mission, which provides advice and training to the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF).

The company will provide advisory and assistance services to support the International Security Assistance Force/ Resolute Support Combined Joint Staff 7-Training and Exercises (ISAF / RS CJ7-TREX) in Afghanistan.

A-T Solutions will provide advisory and assistance support at the ISAF / RS headquarters in Kabul, on a strategic and tactical level.

A-T Solutions president and chief executive officer Dennis Kelly said: "We look forward to working closely with the Resolute Support team and ANSF to deliver effective advisory support and the most comprehensive training programmes available to help secure communities in Afghanistan against the terrorist threat."

The Virginia-based firm will develop, design and present field training material and courses to ISAF / RS personnel on advisory skills, cultural awareness, insider threat, security force assistance (SFA) and other subjects.

"We look forward to working closely with the Resolute Support team and ANSF to deliver effective advisory support."

It will also consolidate lessons learned from coalition SFA operations and report them to ISAF / RS CJ7-TREX through the military chain of command.

These will then be distributed to and shared within training courses that are presented to allied forces in theatre and at pre-deployment centres.

Comprising more than 12,500 personnel from 28 Nato allies and 14 partner nations, the Resolute Support Mission is focused on building the sustainability of the ANSF and institutions, with the central hub at Kabul / Bagram Airfield, as well as four posts in Mazar-e Sharif, Herat, Kandahar, and Laghman, Afghanistan.
