Third Party K9 Cargo Screening Support (3PK9)

In November of 2018, the TSA developed the Third Party K9 Program (3PK9) to certify third-party canine teams to support the air cargo screening mandate. In December of 2018, the TSA began approving Certified Cargo Screening Facility – Canine (CCSF-K9) organizations as part of the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) initiative. CCSF-K9 organizations like Cargo Screening K9® (CSK9) can now support freight forwarders and airlines nationwide to meet the 100% air cargo screening mandate. Tripwire has a wide range of explosive products to offer, including their New custom – Third Party Canine (3PK9) explosive training kits. These specially designed kits have been designed in three parts:

  • 3PK9 Daily Sustainment Kit – Low Odor
  • 3PK9 Monthly Training Kit – High Odor
  • 3PK9 Certification & Validation Kit – Low/High Odor

Tripwire has developed 3PK9 Explosive training kits, researched cargo transit routes, increased the number of explosive storage facilities nationwide, and recruited additional explosive ordnance technicians. All to ensure approved CCSF-K9 companies have monthly access to the very best explosive training aids and specialist support.

OPFOR Training Enhancements

The use of OPFOR in training events is intended to provide realistic field training through operations against a non-cooperative, uncompromising opponent that uses tactics, doctrine, and equipment indicative of a real-world combatant force that may be encountered during the performance of tactical operations. Tripwires OPFOR training enhancements provide realistic and authentic weapon and tactic employment of real-world military and/or paramilitary forces. We provide unique enhancements to any size training scenario or exercise, under various and extreme weather conditions, altitudes, and terrain, which is supported by our extensive cadre of experienced Subject Matter Experts and Exercise Planners. Our OPFOR training enhancements replicate actual combat environments and induce realistic stress.
