This little hide-away was specifically designed for the case officer/contractor who needs to keep this backup hidden until the last critical moment.
The US intelligence community has developed and used successfully, a unique group of Operators, that often are drawn from the ranks of prior military special operations units. Working under theoverall banner of clandestine services the case officers / contractors are often sent for lengthy periods of time to live, work, train and operate with groups of indigenous personnel (locals), in places that are difficult to locate on most maps.
Their skills and their abilities to instruct and lead, are applied to variety of tasks including counter-terrorism operations, counter- insurgency, counter-narcotics, intel gathering and a variety of very delicate work, that needs to be kept quiet.
We salute this talented group of guys that most people have never heard of.
