SOC Delivers Integrated Security for One of the Largest U.S. Embassies in the World

Our solution includes perimeter and static guard services, security screening, technical security and systems monitoring, and detection and protection services via Workings Dogs. Considered one of the largest and most successful security programs in the industry, SOC has partnered with the U.S. Department of State to deliver a new model for high-threat security protection. We begin and end with one goal; namely: to assure that our Government customer can successfully carry out U.S. foreign policy and protect critical national security interests.
SOC Secures Renewed U.S. Diplomatic Presence in High Threat Region of Africa
When the U.S. Government decided to re-establish our nation’s diplomatic presence in an important region of Africa, SOC was called to lead the way by providing mobile and static security for U.S. diplomats and government personnel in a very hostile environment. This vital diplomatic effort followed not long after the U.S. evacuated its embassy due to instability and violence. The mission is critical as the purpose of the renewed U.S. presence is to help prevent further genocide. SOC was able to fully deploy and stand up the mission thirty days ahead of schedule. We now also provide Tactical Operations Center support.

SOC acts as the operating contractor for the U.S. Army’s facility with the largest capability for premier R3 (resource, recovery, and recycle) ammunition storage and demilitarization in the world. Since 1980, SOC has successfully managed ordnance operations including demilitarization of conventional ammunition, ammunition supply and storage operations, with facility support services, environmental services, program management, and security, installation security, fire and emergency services at this Government-Owned Contractor-Operated (GOCO) facility supporting the Joint Munitions Command.

Our services include static, rolling and perimeter security, escort services, facility inspections, force-on-force exercises, training, technical security and systems monitoring, as well as other special and emergency response activities.
Security and Other Support for Department of Defense Forward Operating Locations
SOC excels in the delivery of security in expeditionary and austere environments, and we appreciate the opportunity to deploy with our U.S. military to help augment their critical missions. For example, on the heels of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2004, we were immediately called to provide static and perimeter security, equipment procurement, mobilization, transition, and other essential requirements to augment security operations at four different U.S. military bases spread across that country. SOC mobilized more than 10,000 security professionals in short fashion to ensure that our U.S. military forces could safely focus on their offensive operations. Because of our success, we were asked by the U.S. military to work with them to help create the governing policies and procedures in effect for private security contractors today. With a workforce made up of largely military veterans, SOC embraces its role as a support element for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Beyond just security, we have also worked side-by-side with our U.S. Armed Forces to provide medical training, construction, and logistics support to partner nations in Africa and Southwest Asia.
SOC Team of Experts Remove Harmful Munitions from Receding U.S. Lake Shore
SOC is working with the Department of Defense within the United States to remove Material Potentially Presenting Explosive Hazard (MPPEH) and Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC). Climate change has caused a U.S. lake shoreline to recede nearly 10 miles and drop 150 feet in the past 100 years, uncovering the risk of potentially harmful contaminates in a formerly active range used by the military for ordnance testing. Although there is believed to be additional explosive hazards beneath the service, an estimated 4,000 leftover visible munitions remain on this shoreline from past military function testing - predominately in the form of rocket bodies. Applying SOC’s strong standards of safety and environmentally responsible disposal processes, as the cleanup and discovery of materials continues, the project will include ongoing research and assessments of warhead/motor conditions from samplings of rockets in various locations.
Mission and Life Support for Global Aerospace Company’s Middle East Operations
SOC was chosen for an important partnership with one of the

(FSRs) in the region. SOC completed the start-up of the project on time
and on budget and even expedited the implementation of a VIP access gate,
eliminating all "Red-Zone" exposure for personnel, reducing travel
time and creating a safer workplace.
