Wind Zero to Support Navy Unmanned Aircraft System Training
San Diego, California - The Wind Zero Group, Inc., announced it has secured a contract from the Naval Special Warfare Command to assist the NSW Seals in tactical training, deployment and field uses of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) training.
The initial contract term is for approximately one year with an estimated revenue value of over $198,735.00. This is the second time Wind Zero has been awarded the UAS contract due to its proven track record and satisfaction with their NSW program curriculum.
Brandon Webb, Chief Executive Officer, stated "We are pleased to have been selected to participate in the United States' Navy Special Warfare (NSW) Command training program - our commitment is to continue providing support and education in areas where the NSW SEALs may need help specifically with the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)."
"Our management team is excited about this tremendous opportunity to continue providing training and technical site support at San Clemente Island and assisting the NSW in pushing special operation forces to meet today's security demands," said Jeff Everage, Wind Zero Vice President of Operations.
The Wind Zero Group, Inc. was founded by former US Navy SEALs and is a Defense and Law Enforcement services company that is in the process of developing a state-of-the-art Defense & Law Enforcement training facility east of San Diego, California in the Imperial County. The founders recognized that Southern California had a shortage of training areas forcing most agencies to send personnel out of the region and often, out of state to meet their training requirements.
