IAP Worldwide services is doing its part to aid the United States Air Force in its efforts in Afghanistan. Recently, one of IAP Worldwide’s subsidiaries, Pana City-based Readiness Management Support(RMS) took on the difficult task of leading airport development in Kabul. Their job was to build an an air traffic control system which could provide support to Operation Enduring Freedom. They managed other subcontractors who all worked for the U.S. military. RMS’s chief task was to create a functioning visual flight rule services system for the Flight Information Region. It also needed to be capable of instrument flight rule, non-radar positioning, and positive control. IAP Worldwide Services was more than up to the task.
RMS functioned as a contractor on the AFCAP program or Air Force Contract Augmentation Program. It is an innovative program whose goal was to find new methods of creating airways, installing them, delivering on time, and maintaining the function of the communication equipment. All this was for the purpose of having proper radio coverage on the airways. RMS staff also operated as air traffic controllers and performed final flight checking. ManTech Telecommunications is one of RMS’s subcontractors and it played a role in system design, installation, and procurement at various locations across Afghanistan while Midwest ATC services trained and supplied the air traffic controllers needed for the proper operation of the airport.
IAP Worldwide has a talented team of employees who can work under any circumstances. When asked to comment on the capability of his staff Al Neffgen said they have an amazing record of success on difficult missions. Neffgen is the CEO of IAP Worldwide and he oversees their global operations. IAP Worldwide’s staff have been working in emergency, and hostile situations for a long time and they have never faltered in getting the job done.
Now that the air traffic control systems are complete IAP Worldwide staff are involved in maintenance and continued personnel operations for the facilities. Afghan civilian government employees must be continually trained until they are up to IAP Worldwide Services’ standards. Since the airspace above the airport is one of the most congested in the entire world the job is especially demanding. The airport is highly profitable for the Afghan government already. It manages to generate hundreds of dollars for every outbound plane through commerce done. Most supplies are for providing disaster relief in the region. IAP continues to support all the airports activities.
