Close Static Observation Platforms Training Course Concept:

CROPS® specialise in teaching small, unique teams how to operate in high risk semi, and non-permissive environments within dense urban locations.

Teaching conventional, and non-conventional tactics within the surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence spectrum.

Almost every operation is triggered after a period of static surveillance, be this a quick search for conformation, or a long drawn out period of static observation conducted by an organic team deployment in a covert manor to gather mission critical intelligence. The ‘fix’ is always key to the ‘strike’.

Our 5 day ‘CSOp’ course is very demanding, both physically and mentally. Delegates attending should be selected with the correct aptitude for task.

The aim of our ‘CSOp’ course is to instruct delegates on safe tactical practises required for all static observations within semi-permissive populated locations, be this to gather intelligence, trigger a kinetic strike, or to monitor a targets pattern of life.


Close Static Observation Platforms Training Course Delivery:

Delegates attending will be introduced to our proven techniques and equipment that has been designed and developed ‘in-house’ after many years of operational deployments, our experience has led to the manufacture of specialist hide systems which delegates will be fully trained on throughout the course.

Concentrating of both static observation from within buildings, and the deployment of rapid low consumption vehicle hides that can be adapted to suit the mission in hand.

This course is delivered with classroom sessions where Delegates learn and understand the theoretical aspect when operating from a concealed urban location. From there we move into the field and conduct several live hide deployments, these are rehearsed throughout the day and then deployed at night under real-time conditions.
