Enabler Designed Group Education (E.D.G.E.)

15/10/3 Day Modular Pre-Mission Training Course

The PMT cycle for enabler units never seems to sync with the supported unit's training prior to deployment into the AOR.  Our PMT Course enables the Detachment Commander to apply efficient training principles in the shortest time available for training the Detachment to become a valued asset to the supported unit.

This course uses 15/10/3 days to train the detachment in Warfighter skills needed to survive in combat. The Raidon Tactics Inc. E.D.G.E Training Program modules can be coordinated with our training team and be inserted into the training cycle the Detachment Commander uses to train METL tasks and allow for training of Warfighter skills. Each module can be taken at the time the Detachment Commander is able to fit it into his PMT schedule.

The Raidon Tactics Inc. E.D.G.E Training Program’s modules are Warfighter-centric for a total tactical and strategic advantage for the unit. It eliminates the additional administrative and resource-intensive tasks associated with unit training by providing:

Range Coordination

Range Use

Range Support

Ammo forecasts

Ammunition Draws

Ammunition Turn-In

Weapons draw

Weapons Use

Weapons Transport

Weapons Storage

The Raidon Tactics Inc. E.D.G.E Training Program provides staff and turnkey capabilities that allow the unit to train without distractions normally associated with On-Post regulations and requirements. We are the efficient answer to the inefficient problems associated with shortened training Cycle times and schedules.

5 Day High Threat Meeting Survivability Course

 The High Threat Meeting Survivability Course was designed for unit members required to conduct unilateral or liaison meetings in high threat unconventional environments. These operational missions are conducted with minimal personnel that relies strictly on themselves for immediate Force Protection Measures. Because of this type of mission, the course was specifically tailored to teach skills needed in high-stress adrenal situations that require a different approach to complete. This course is not a typical CQB course or a Typical Gunfighter Course. These operators are not part of a multiple-person assault team. The Tactics and Techniques used were developed by instructors that have operated in the Singleton environment and understand the unconventional roles of the unit members and their mission. This is not a basic Marksmanship/Tactics course and the unit members that attend must be capable of intermediate to advanced shooting abilities prior to attending. This training course will be conducted in a Crawl-Walk-Run manner. Raidon Tactics utilizes the Explain, Demonstrate, Imitate, and Mentor (EDI-M) Methodology of training by Special Forces Instructor (H) qualified Trainers with 20 years of Special Forces and Special Operations Backgrounds. Trainers will give immediate feedback to students to correct deficiencies and ensure that students leave the course with a high degree of understanding and ability to execute the fundamentals and principles of the tasks trained. This instruction is given in two parts, minimal classroom knowledge modules and comprehensive skill-building modules executed in realistic environments.  This course is conducted in a high-risk environment and all safety precautions shall be adhered to. The Instructor to Student ratio shall be a  1:5 ratio for all training events because of the risk of injury.  The use of UTM MMR training rounds and Live fire ammunition are both utilized in task-driven and scenario-driven training iterations. The training unit is responsible for completing any unit-required Risk Assessments or approvals before conducting courses or sustainment training iterations.

5 Day Software Defined Radio Maintenance Course

Mission essential equipment must be properly maintained and updated to perform at optimum effectiveness. However, contract changes and funding cycles often leave important equipment unsupported and unmaintained, leading to potentially catastrophic failures. Most of the Software Defined Radio (SDR) systems in customer inventories are capable but have fallen into obsolescence as a result of funding drops, while some newer technologies have been issued to units that are not necessarily improvements. This 5-day course teaches trouble shooting, bench testing and optimization of current mission essential inventoried systems designed to prolong and enhance the effectiveness of time proven SDRs. We offer cable and connection solutions, the latest software updates, memory card upgrades, troubleshooting algorithms and equipment specific smart cards that enable equipment operators to continue effective preventative maintenance checks and services that ensure continued combat effectiveness.
 

5 Day APPLIED RADIOWAVE PROPAGATION THEORY COURSE

This 5-day module is a presentation of physical principles that create and affect natural and man-made electromagnetic energy. RF energy concepts are broken down into easily applied functions and base-line understanding. Several practical applications drive home the concepts so that students view the science and the art of RF theory and its manipulation. These energy waves are strongly influenced by physical principles such as terrain, energy sources and ambient conditions. Through application of the concepts learned in this module, students will be able to identify various wave-forms, corresponding antennas and understand how terrain can mask or amplify radiated waves and various frequencies. Students will build field expedient antennas to capture specific frequencies using common materials. Students proficient at this stage will have the opportunity to certify as licensed HAM Radio operators and continue applying RF theory to communications and connect to others around the globe.

 

 5 Day TARGETING/IDENTIFYING THE OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT COURSE

Once the student has completed the Applied Radio Wave Propagation Theory course they understand how RF energy emanates and propagates. This 5 Day module will build on that by introducing ways to measure and assess frequencies of interest. Students will work with spectrum analyzers, scanners and software defined radios to map out the EM spectrum, isolate signals and learn various methods of collecting and intercepting transmitted information. This module is one of the most difficult areas to master, but students will acquire enough resources to continue investigating source energy for the rest of their careers.

 

10 Day TARGET PROSECUTION/DIRECTION FINDING COURSE

This course explores the art and science of Radio Direction Finding. Since this is the core capability for intercept teams, students spend 2 weeks learning how to apply this skill to their investigating capabilities. Students learn to interrogate frequencies and trace them back to their source using tactics, techniques and procedures validated in the most recent global hotspots. By applying both overt and covert means, students learn how to protect their capabilities while exposing adversarial vulnerabilities. During Mode 4, students inventory their own electronic footprint and learn ways to reduce and mitigate EM risks in order to operate in both permissive and non-permissive environments. Situational Training Exercises, lanes training and rabbit drills help students hone the skills taught in this module and provide training regimens that students will be able to recreate after their return to continue skill refinement. Various pieces of MTOE equipment will be introduced and used during this block of instruction. The course is designed to be gear agnostic as technologies and TTPs continue to evolve, but the basic practical physics remain constant.



MEDICAL
 

2 Day Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Refresher Course

5 Day TCCC Course

TCCC is the standard of care for the tactical management of combat casualties within the Department of Defense and is the sole standard of care dually endorsed by both the American College of Surgeons and the National Association of EMT’s for casualty management in tactical environments.  TCCC is built around three definitive phases of casualty care:

Care Under Fire:

Care rendered at the scene of the injury while both the medic and the casualty are under hostile fire. Available medical equipment is limited to that carried by each Warfighter and the medic.

Tactical Field Care:

Rendered once the casualty is no longer under hostile fire. Medical equipment is still limited to that carried into the field by mission personnel. Time prior to evacuation may range from a few minutes to many hours.

Tactical Evacuation Care (TACEVAC):

Rendered while the casualty is evacuated to a higher echelon of care. Any additional personnel and medical equipment pre-staged in these assets will be available during this phase.

These courses cover the Care under fire and Tactical Field care phases for soldiers that are isolated or in small units away from medical assistance, using small bags that have minimal equipment. The Warfighter will learn these techniques in a classroom setting and then apply the techniques in a realistic stressful combat force on force setting on moulage patients or Live Human Models. The student will learn each piece of medical gear in his IFAK bag and its use in the real world. These courses utilize multiple scenarios in Mounted/Dismounted, Day/Night, Rural/Urban situations that train and test the skills in saving the lives of his fellow Warfighters. 

 

5 Day Tactical Combat Casualty Care All Combatants Course

The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield. TCCC is required for all Combatant personnel deploying to the CentCom AOR as part of a Pre-Mission Train-up (PMT) (USFOR-A FRAGO 14-067 21 March 2014.) The course is designed for non-medical all combatant personnel deploying in support of combat operations. TCCC is the standard of care for the tactical management of combat casualties within the Department of Defense and is the sole standard of care dually endorsed by both the American College of Surgeons and the National Association of EMT’s for casualty management in tactical environments. This 48-hour course will cover the entire spectrum of Tactical Combat Casualty Care principles and teach the tactical non-medical operator to perform appropriate medical care skills in hostile and austere conditions. This course exceeds the curriculum of both the US Army’s Combat Lifesaver and Combat Medic Advanced Skills Training courses.

Because this is an All-Combatants personnel training module some medical treatments are not covered. This is in response to directed protocols from the DOD, AMEDD and Navy Bureau of Medicine.

The Warfighter will learn these techniques in a classroom setting and then apply the techniques in a realistic stressful combat force on force setting on moulage patients. The student will learn each piece of medical gear in his IFAK bag and understand its whole use. Each student will also use multipurpose items and learn “ditch medicine” along with improvised medical items. These courses utilize multiple scenarios in Mounted/Dismounted, Day/Night, Rural/Urban situations that train and test the Warfighters skills in saving the lives of his fellow Warfighters.  Raidon Tactics shall provide weapons and UTM for realistic Scenario based training. 


3 Day COMBAT MEDIC COURSE

This course was developed because of the lack of qualified combat medic instruction in the training world. This course is taught by 18 Deltas (Special Forces Medics) that have combat experience as a combat medic. This course is actually not a medical training course. It is a “being a medic in combat” course. The way a medic carries his gear, his weapon and does his or her job is totally different than anyone else on the battlefield.  The typical instruction for Medics as far as shooting, moving and communicating goes is taught by an infantryman or the like.  This course is taught to enhance the medical skills a medic already has but concentrates on the combat fighting aspect of his job. Lets face it, the enemy does not care if you have a red cross on your shoulder or not. He will still try to kill you. This course of instruction leads off with firearms training and moves quickly to live fire in close proximity to patients while conducting medical tasks. This course is three days in length. It requires all students to be in good physical condition, be able to carry your body weight at least 100 meters with all of your combat gear on.
 

 


SMALL UNIT TACTICS and INFILTRATION COURSES
 

5-8-10 Day SMALL UNIT TACTICS COURSE

The Small Unit Tactics Course is for the non-Infantry Unit that are attached to small Special Operations and Infantry Units. It covers the Principles and Fundamentals for Patrolling and Individual and Team Maneuver. It covers the aspects of Shoot, Move and Communicate when in both rural and Urban environments. Ambush, Raid and Reconnaissance Missions are conducted in both day and Nighttime. The students will stay in the field under combat conditions with OpFor Role Players if wanted/needed The Command and Structure of the Infantry Unit or Special Operations Unit will be utilized to understand the “how” your unit will best integrate into the larger unit. This course is the perfect train up for those personnel that have never stayed in the field with new equipment. It is the first three days of any field problem that non-Infantry personnel have the most difficulty with. This course also teaches best practices for in the field living. Not only how to move quietly but also teaches the basic skills for Camouflage, Stealthy movement and learning how to use NVG’s and other gear not normally used. The use of Land Navigation techniques with a MAP and COMPASS are used for remedial training of a very important skill.  This course is conducted in both the classroom and out in the field mush like the US Army Ranger School is conducted, but, with mentorship and coaching. There is no “wash-out” factor to deal with. The students are put into different positions so that they can see what the different responsibilities are for each leadership position along with supporting those in leadership positions. The duration of the courses are different so that a unit may use it as a refresher or initial training, what ever works best for the unit.
