Jakarta, Indonesia – June 6, 2023.  HTS subsidiary, Safeguards 3 (S3), recently completed a project supporting the U.S. Department of State's Export Control and Related Border Security (ExBS) program in Jakarta with the Indonesian Directorate of Aviation Security, which hosted the aviation security performance testing workshop.

S3 partnered with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's National Security Directorate to train and consult participants who were able to conduct live-environment performance testing on the essential security elements of the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.  The team had access to all parts of the airport and 15 airports across Indonesia were represented in the group, as well as senior aviation security officials from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

Rob Siefken, COO of S3, led the effort and stated, "Airport and aviation security is a critical component of national security.  It was a privilege to work with the great team of security professionals responsible for Indonesia's aviation security."

The Department of State's ExBS program seeks to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and destabilizing accumulations and irresponsible transfers of conventional weapons by building effective national strategic trade control systems in countries that possess, produce, or supply strategic items, as well as in countries through which such items are most likely to transit.  S3 personnel have assisted with training and consulting across the globe, with emphasis on the Middle East and Asia.

S3, a subsidiary of Hi Tech Solutions, delivers best-in-class safeguards and security training to government and private sector clients worldwide, with a focus on national security and nonproliferation, commercial nuclear, electricity and critical infrastructure, and education sectors.
