LENOIR CITY, Tenn., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ — The Joint Contracting Command – Iraq/Afghanistan (JCC-I/A) awarded EOD Technology, Inc. a $3.4M contract to provide Contract Working Dogs for the NATO International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Southern Afghanistan, primarily at the Kandahar Airfield. The award is for up to 43 Explosive Detecting Dog (EDD) and Narcotics Detecting Dog (NDD) teams in support of security operations base entry points, along the airfield’s outer perimeter, as well as in support of Provincial reconstruction Teams in Afghanistan’s five southern provinces.

EODT is one of the largest providers of canine services world-wide, and the Kandahar Contract is currently the largest canine contract in Afghanistan. EODT’s canine program is fully accredited by the UN Mine Action Centre for Afghanistan, generally considered to be among the most difficult accreditations to obtain, and all working dogs in this contract meet Department of Army Certification Authority certification standards. Andy Potts, EODT’s Canine Program Manager, commented, “We are very proud to have been selected for this contract, and we look forward to meeting the challenges associated with supporting ISAF in the increased threat environment of Southern Afghanistan. Our teams are ready for this task.”

EODT provides canine services at numerous high profile locations in the Middle East and elsewhere, including the Iraqi Parliament buildings in Baghdad, NATO compounds in Iraq, near the Demilitarized Zone in Korea (January field start), and in support of presidential candidate debates in the Unites States.

EODT provides demining, construction, and security services from its Kabul operations center in Kabul.

    Chris,

    You are are not much of a professional to critique another’s email note. He may have just cranked it out to find a reliable reply. Instead, you had to belittle him nationwide…so much for teamwork and people who really want to help their country.
