California Army Project Wins Top IAP Award

California Army Project Wins Top IAP Award
Cape Canaveral, Fla. -- A team of employees from IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. at Fort Irwin, Calif. that helps prepare U.S. Army soldiers for tours of duty in the global war on terror has been awarded the 2006 IAP Gold Eagle Award. This top corporate honor is selected from all winning employee teams or individuals who were awarded IAP Silver Eagle quarterly awards during 2006.

The 20-member Fort Irwin Devices and Supply Training Support Team fabricates, maintains and repairs custom kits installed on a variety of U.S. military vehicles so they can play the role of foreign military equipment in complex war games during training at the U.S. Army's National Training Center at the Mojave Desert post. The Devices and Supply team also is responsible for the design and fabrication of additional training aids, including simulated weapons such as assault rifles, hand grenades, and mortar rounds, which all help to ensure that soldiers receive the most realistic training possible.

'All of our employees provide critical support to our military and civilian customers on a daily basis around the world,' said Al Neffgen, IAP CEO. 'Our Eagle awards are a way to recognize the exceptional efforts that make such an important difference for our customer partners. Congratulations to this outstanding Fort Irwin team.'

Since the start of the war in Iraq, IAP's Devices and Supply team at Fort Irwin has responded to changing training needs, including involvement in the development of Warlocks, a sophisticated vehicle-mounted electronic device that is designed to thwart enemy detonations of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) commonly used in roadside bombings in the Middle East. Fort Irwin is the only facility in the world that trains personnel on the operation of the Warlocks device. The Devices and Supply team has developed time-critical methods to turn around and maintain the devices during mock drills at Fort Irwin and also during the first off-site Warlocks training session last year for the Army's 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Stewart, Ga. By training soldiers at the Georgia base during a tight Iraq re-deployment schedule, IAP helped the government save millions of dollars compared to on-site training at Fort Irwin.

IAP's Eagle awards are designed to recognize employees who perform in an exceptional manner on the job, create a high performance workplace, and strive to increase efficiency through improved processes. Individuals or teams are nominated each quarter by IAP employees and judged by an internal awards committee based on an objective evaluation process
