SERE Combatives Enhancing Self-Defense

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. — The Air Force recently implemented an advanced Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape Combatives Program to enhance SERE specialists’ capability to instruct self-defense techniques to aircrews, thereby increasing survival chances in an unfriendly environment.

The combatives class trains in advanced projectile, striking, clenching and grappling self-defense techniques for SERE specialist Airmen.

“The program is not about learning how to fight,” said Senior Airman Skyler Pendleton, 22nd Training Squadron SERE specialist and SERE Combatives Program instructor. “It’s about learning how to defend yourself whether it is downtown, in a deployed location or in a worse environment where you may need to evade or escape.”

The 80-hour program is an advancement of the 40-hour course SERE specialists take in technical training.

“Some of the techniques are more complex than we’re used to,” said Staff Sgt. Erik Wieland, 306th Rescue Squadron SERE specialist reservist from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona. “It’s challenging to take every step and perform it perfectly- not only to complete the course, but to go back to your unit and teach it to your customers correctly, so they are prepared in the field.”

Instructors evaluate specialists on various moves from across the entire spectrum of combatives through hands-on demonstrations and through a question-and-answer portion. Specialists must explain the importance of combatives moves and tell instructors why certain moves may be more efficient than others in combat scenarios.

“This training is different than MMA, boxing, wrestling, etc.,” Pendleton said. “One must realize this is the game of life, there are no rules and anything is fair play. You might have to knee someone in the face or do whatever it takes to get out of a situation and survive. We keep the training controlled but try not to get stuck in a rule-based system of fighting where you can’t do certain moves because it is considered dangerous.”

SERE specialists prepare isolated personnel for any emergency event or captivity situation. This advanced program will increase mission readiness for aircrew by creating a heightened level of assurance in their ability to prevent or escape precarious situations and return home with honor.

Orolia Introduces SecureFind Wearable  Combat Search and Rescue Beacon

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018
Dual-mode supports combat missions, even in GPS-denied environments 

 

  
Washington, D.C. – October 8, 2018  Orolia, the world leader in Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) solutions, introduces its latest military technology innovation, the SecureFind™ Combat Rescue Beacon at the 2018 AUSA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
In addition to protecting our most critical assets and leaving no one behind, Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) technology can significantly enhance military operations by avoiding the loss of sensitive information and technology, avoiding hostage situations and helping to prevent conflict escalation.
SecureFind is based on Orolia’s proven search and rescue technology suite, backed by more than 30 years of world-leading innovation and selected by military forces for CSAR missions. The wearable base unit includes an open channel search and rescue solution, for military use in training or test mode. It can also be configured with a customer-defined, secure channel solution for covert operations. This versatile CSAR solution operates with a silent, push-button functionality that does not require voice activation. SecureFind enables military forces to precisely and safely execute CSAR missions, with optional Assured PNT technology that prevents GPS signal interference, spoofing and jamming. 
“There is no greater need for urgency, stealth and precision than when military personnel are isolated in rugged environments or behind enemy lines,” said Orolia VP Defense Programs, Paul Zweers. “As the only end-to-end provider of Assured PNT technology, Orolia is proud to introduce SecureFind for covert military operations – even when GPS signals are unavailable.”
“Software-defined, wearable communications technology is now more important than ever on today’s air, land, sea and cyber battlefields,” said Orolia CEO Jean-Yves Courtois. “CSAR missions are just the beginning of potential uses for this resilient military technology, which can ensure reliable positioning, navigation and timing data in any operating environment. Orolia’s solutions are tailored to support today’s soldiers and engineered with a view toward the future of global military networks.”
The standard SecureFind solution is available at a price point that could enable thousands of warfighters to benefit from this new battlefield technology. More advanced functionality is also available, such as the ability to change signals on-the-go for additional security, to detect and mitigate GPS jamming and spoofing, and to generate important strategic information such as virtual battlefield maps of jamming and spoofing activity.
Orolia offers a cost-effective, modular approach to Assured PNT, with a flexible, open architecture that integrates easily with legacy systems. This layered platform meets critical technology requirements without over-engineering a solution that is complex, expensive and difficult to maintain. Additional SecureFind product information is available at the AUSA Annual Meeting, Orolia Booth #8051.
