AEGIS "shoot 'em up gang" wins biggest DOD contract in Iraq

Press release from Aegis website today

AEGIS Wins Contract Renewal

Aegis Defence Services Limited, a security and risk management company, has won the renewal of the US Department of Defense's (DOD) contract to provide Reconstruction Security Support Services in Iraq.

This two year contract, the largest single security contract awarded by DOD, is anticipated to be valued up to $475 million.

Tim Spicer, Aegis CEO, stated, "We are very pleased to receive this award which we believe is a fine reflection of both our previous performance and our ongoing commitment to serve our client, the US Army Corps of Engineers Gulf Regional Division (GRD), to the best of our ability."

Since 2004, under the original contract, has Aegis provided a command, control, communication, intelligence and security framework to GRD - enabling the reconstruction effort to take place in as secure an environment as possible. During this period, Aegis has travelled over three million miles throughout Iraq and completed over 20,000 missions.

"We are delighted to continue supporting DOD. A secure environment will allow Iraq's critical reconstruction to continue and help create the conditions that will enable the country to re-establish itself as a self-supporting nation" Spicer said.

The announcement of the award means Aegis will have worked continuously in Iraq since the start of its original three year contract in June 2004.

Pics above from the AEGIS "trophy" video shot by their security guards in Baghdad randomly shooting Iraqi civilians. The video, appeared on a website that has been linked unofficially to Aegis Defence Services, contained four separate clips, in which security guards open fire with automatic rifles at civilian cars. All of the shooting incidents apparently took place on "route Irish", a road that links the airport to Baghdad. The Video is on Google Video and was there 5 minutes ago
