Start of contract postponed

Dear applicants and former COB’s. May 2014 the U.S.-Army decided to exercise the next COB-training (COB = civilians on the battlefield) in cooperation with Optronics. Due to our competitor’s protest, this decision needs to be reviewed within the next 100 days.

What does this mean?

At the moment we can’t provide any personnel. Therefore we ask you for your patience and hope that this issue will be handled within the next couple of weeks. Although it might take as long as aforementioned 100 days.

What to do now?

The U.S.-Army awarded the contract to Optronic and is strongly interested in carrying out the COB-training units as scheduled. Considering these facts we hope that the review of this call will result in confirmation of our cooperation. We will inform you on any updates and decisions per email and our website as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your understanding and patience.
