TIDES shares sustainable solutions with Special Operations Community

Earlier this month, TIDES exhibited at the 25th Annual SO/LIC (Special Operations/ Low Intensity Conflict) Symposium & Exhibition at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, in Washington, DC.   This year’s show explored integrating worldwide partners to support global SO/LIC employment.  The TIDES exhibit showcased a variety of low tech solutions (including renewable energy, shelter, cookstoves, etc.) to support Special Operation Forces in action missions. STAR-TIDES solutions are ideal for SO/LIC missions because they can help DOD and other US Government components identify infrastructure, equipment, and processes that can greatly reduce the costs of providing effective support to stressed populations.
