Operations Support

No matter where you are, or where you are planning to be, Downrange Operations and Training has the expert knowledge and resources to help you accomplish your mission.

Whether you are a government agency, a small business with limited international exposure or a large multinational corporation with locations around the world, understanding the challenges your organization faces in international locations and austere envoirments can be a risk. Not only must you consider how best to deliver a project and mitigate the risks in each country, but you have to consider how a problem in one country could affect your projects in other countries. To complicate matters, legislation varies considerably by country, as do local customs, and failing to comply with local requirements can result in fines, penalties and bureaucratic complications. Add to these factors differences in language, culture, and time zones, and it becomes clear that you need an experienced company with the right resources to help you navigate the inevitable hazards.

Making the world much simpler for you

Downrange makes it simple for you to work with one manager, who accesses the appropriate experts within our company to deliver one comprehensive, tailored plan. Your lead manager will work closely with counterparts around the world, so that your project will receive the attention it deserves. Regardless of project scope, complexity, or size, our managers will understand your business, and work with you to deliver a customized project solution.

Strong local commitment, extensive global reach

Our managers are experienced operators in their markets. They are rooted in their community, but are also very experienced in working with managers from other countries. This translates to high-quality service provided by experienced professionals who believe in long-term relationships.

Working relationships that really work for you

Downrange managers know one another. More than names in a global contact directory, they are collegues who meet regularly face to face and are able to pick up the phone and resource your project. They are committed and responsive to one another, based on shared commitment to customer requirements. Our managers use both scheduled and impromptu meetings to leverage their extensive, collective experience and relationships, in support of Downrange customer projects.
