DoD contractor Charter Trading chooses Ironclad Encryption for secure communications
IronClad Encryption Corporation has announced that Department of Defense (DoD) contractor Charter Trading Corporation will market and sell IronClad Encryption’s ultra-secure phone and networking products to the US military and government agencies, all of which recognize the need to make their deployed telecommunications software, hardware and networks more secure than they are today.
"Charter Trading has active engagements with companies currently providing operational support and research activities to intelligence and special operations organizations," said JD McGraw, Chief Executive Officer of Ironclad Encryption. "The security and safety of our country’s military personnel is of paramount importance to Ironclad Encryption, and we are honored that as part of Charter’s engagements and relationships, we will be actively marketing Ironclad's technology to the Special Operations community and including IronClad's products in response to RFPs issued by the Defense Intelligence Agency."
Charter Trading provides technical support and skilled personnel for US military operations throughout the world and various international corporations. Its employees provide command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, Information Technology (IT) and telecom support in the field, including combat zones. Over its 30 year history, Charter Trading has supported operations within the US, North America, Latin America, Eastern Europe, North America and the Pacific region. Since 1987, Charter Trading has worked as a subcontractor to various companies including Harris, L3 Technologies, Lockheed Martin, DynCorp International, Loral Corporation, Hughes, UltiSat, and AT&T. Its customers have included the 12th Airforce (12AF), AT&T, Cable & Wireless Communications, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA, Exxon), Hondutel, Nokia, Simmons, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, SOITHCOM, and the U.S. Army South (USARSO).
Charter Trading is currently a team member or subcontractor on several DoD Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, such as ITES02S, NETCENTS, SEAPORTE and CTS, that fast-track procurement.
"The IDIQ contracts allow DoD organizations to quickly and efficiently acquire IT services or products by issuing task orders to pre-qualified contractors and contracting teams," said Bill Comee IV, president of Charter Trading Corp. "Through us, IronClad will have access to contractors and customers to market products to the DoD community in an expedited fashion."
Charter Trading has entered into a Mentor Protégé agreement with Tec-Masters, Inc. to pursue business opportunities with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and Missile Defense Agency (MDA), as well as inclusion in the DOD’s formal Mentor Protégé program. This allows Charter Trading access to training, business development and set aside contract opportunities sponsored by the DIA and MDA, ultimately providing IronClad’s technology and products visibility across multiple procurement channels. Charter Trading previously participated in the DOD Mentor Protégé program as a Protégé of L-3 Missile Integration Division, and is a winner of the prestigious 2016 Nunn Perry Award for outstanding performance as a Mentor Protégé team.
