ADS Federal Range Day – Trijicon RMR Type 2 Battery Compartment Update

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Earlier this week, Trijicon released the RMR Type 2 which has a variety of new features including a button lockout mode as well as a battery conservation mode which auto adjusts to ambient lighting conditions (sleep mode) after 16.5 hours of inactivity. Additionally, there are eight intensity settings, including two night vision and one super bright setting. The CR2032 battery will last for four years on brightness setting four, or for five years in dark storage. And yes, it uses the same currently available mounting solutions.

But to users the biggest improvement is in the battery case. In this SSD exclusive you can see the new battery compartment for the CR 2032 battery. In addition to additional contacts, they’ve also incorporated a rubber gasket to mitigate shock to the battery while firing.

John Dunn will now serve as the company’s Chief Financial Officer

Virginia Beach, Va. – Company officials announced the promotion of long-time employee, John Dunn, to the position of ADS Inc.’s Chief Financial Officer earlier this week.

Dunn began his career with ADS as Corporate Controller in 2010, before being promoted to Vice President of Finance in 2013. He helped lead the company’s financing efforts over the past seven years and frequently represented ADS at investor conferences and lender meetings.

“I am excited to engage in this new chapter with the company,” said Dunn. “ADS is an amazing organization and I am extremely honored to serve as its CFO.”

During his tenure with the company, Dunn has worked closely with key vendors and customers in a way that has contributed to ADS’ success and ensured the company maintains the highest standards in financial reporting.

“With the company’s recent refinance of its senior secured notes complete, ADS has the necessary capital and is well-positioned for continued growth,” said the company’s CEO, Jason Wallace. “John was a key part of that effort and I am confident he will continue to have a positive impact on ADS’ success as our CFO.”

ADS also announced this week that Karan Rai, the company’s current President and CFO, will be transitioning away from his involvement in the daily operations of ADS to focus fully on continuing his role as CEO of the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Theodore Wille Intertrade, GmbH.

“Karan has been instrumental in assisting the organization’s expansion into new markets and geographies globally with the acquisition of TWI,” said ADS Executive Chairman, Luke Hillier. “He guided the company through a critical capital markets refinancing and I look forward to his continued role in the growth of our new markets.”

In his role, Rai will be responsible for overseeing TWI, a global provider of integrated supply chain solutions to customers primarily operating in the United States European Command (EUCOM) and the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) regions.

“Over the past 12 months I was heavily focused on our capital markets refinancing process and ensuring post close success at TWI. During that time, Jason and John have been doing much of the heavy lifting in running ADS day to day,” Rai said. “The ADS platform continues to be in very capable hands with Jason and the rest of the management team and I look forward to taking on a more focused challenge of leading our growth platform at TWI.”

ADS Inc Presents – Kopis Mobile On Military Apps

Monday, December 5th, 2016

In preparing for a recent blog post entitled, “Assessing the Need for Operational Apps in the Warfighter Community” ADS spoke with local defense technology company Kopis Mobile to discuss both commercially available mobile apps as well as custom military themed apps. Designed to save time and increase productivity, a quality app is also intuitive and easy-to-use.

Kopis Mobile not only specializes in designing and manufacturing custom apps, but they also offer app-enabled equipment, often integrating existing commercial technologies. Their success is based in their keen understanding of military requirements, from a programmatic as well as end-user standpoint, combined with the agility only a small, focused business, can offer. I’ve known the guys from Kopis going back over a dozen years, to my time at SOCPAC and later, after retirement with Blackwater and Mav6. They’ve introduced some very cool capabilities.
