DI team members rapidly deployed to the site to perform damage assessment. Within 48 hours, the DI team had completed a site assessment and was ready to engage in site recovery operations. Working closely with Government customers, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, the 721st Civil Engineer Squadron, and Headquarters Air Force Space Command, and DI’s Supply Chain Center of Excellence, team members were able to quickly clear debris and help Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station get on its way back to normal operating status.
“The DI team was honored to actively participate in this recovery process in Colorado after hearing about the devastating floods in this area,” said Andrew Cooke, DynCorp International senior contracts manager. “It was important to us to work closely with our customer in this kind of emergency relief situation to ensure the proper results were delivered.”
Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is home to the 721st Mission Support Group which operates, maintains, secures, sustains, mobilizes, tests, and controls the worldwide warning and surveillance system for North America, normally referred to as the Integrated Tactical Warning and Attack Assessment weapon system.
