Colorado-based TechWise to provide Air Traffic Control Services for the Mississippi Army National Guard at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado/USA – TechWise today announced that it will begin Air Traffic, Air Information and Ground Traffic Control for the Mississippi Army National Guard at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center (CSJFTC). The training center was established in 1917 in support of mobilization during World War I and it has served almost continuously since then as a training site. The site encompasses more than 134,000 acres and can support battalion level maneuver training. It serves as a training site for National Guardsmen and Reservists from throughout the country hosting as many as 100,000 personnel annually.
TechWise Air Traffic Controllers will provide Air Information Center services to arriving and departing military fixed and rotary wing aircraft to include the establishment of flight corridors, designated routes and altitudes. This program is an outgrowth of TechWise’s current role managing, operating, and maintaining airfield flight operations at Biggs Army Airfield, Fort Bliss, Texas and for the U.S. Coast Guard at Air Station Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
“TechWise is extremely honored to be able to support our men and women in uniform and help protect them as they go out in harm’s way. It is a privilege to be selected by our Nation to assume responsibilities for such a critical mission”, remarked Shawnee Huckstep, TechWise President and CEO. “This award reflects the continued commitment TechWise has in supporting military aviation.”
