Exercise Artemis Strike is a German-led tactical live fire exercise with live Patriot and Stinger missiles at the NATO Missile Firing Installation in Chania, Greece from Oct. 31-Nov. 09. Over 200 U.S. soldiers and approximately 650 German airmen will be participating in the realistic training within a combined construct, exercise the rigors associated with force projection and educate operators on their air missile defense systems. The 10th Army Air Missile Defense Command will deploy, operate and fire live missiles within a tactical scenario, under Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe operational readiness evaluation criteria.

February 2, 2018 – Alexandria, VA – In February 2017, the Loch Harbour Group (LHG) was awarded a major contract to provide 14 Series Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) Instructor Services to the Fires Center of Excellence (FCoE), 30th Air Defense Artillery Brigade, Fort Sill, OK. The objective of this contract is to instruct US and Foreign Military Sales Soldiers using performance-oriented training based on the TRADOC-approved program of instruction. The scope of instruction encompasses characteristics, capabilities, operation, and maintenance of the Patriot Missile System; Stinger Weapon System; Avenger Weapon System; Counter-Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar (C-RAM) systems; Land-based Phalanx Weapon System; Sentinel Radar Systems; and C4I systems as well as their communications equipment, environmental control units, and prime power units.

LHG’s initial contract was for 18 instructors. Following a recent major modification to support the expansion of the Army’s Air Defense Artillery, LHG will now provide more than 130 certified instructors to the 30th Air Defense Artillery Brigade at Fort Sill, OK. LHG President/Owner Tony Braddock noted that the contract modification reflects the client’s trust earned through exceptional work by the company’s existing team. “LHG is excited to support the Army on one of their top priorities, and we are up to the challenge,” he said.
