Tactics, Techniques and Procedures are constantly improving in the realm of small unit emergency response. In the interest of improving TZ Critical Incident Response TZRD has conducted a After Action Review (AAR) of the Critical Incident Response(CIR)conducted by Special Operations Forces in response to being ambushed and overwhelmed by Nigerian Terrorists. This intelligence product was compiled with information drawn from multiple sources including SOFREP and the New York Times.

From SOFREP -"The men were outnumbered and once fire superiority was lost due to the nature and execution of the ambush, the situation quickly began to deteriorate."

We honor these men by watching their last stand, not by turning away; they were true warriors to the end.
"The team was caught out in the open with only their (unarmored) vehicles and what looks to be a B6 Land Cruiser (armored) to use as cover and the militants were dispersed throughout a tree line in greater numbers. With no way to regain the initiative, the men attempted to egress and were eventually killed. They killed 21 enemy militants before it was all over." Go Teame!

TZ Research & Development assists other TZ Divisions with the technology, assets, and technical assistance required to support TZ operatives in the field. TZ Drone Division and the TZ.ROV and TZ.UAV programs are just some of the myriad ways TZR&D assists during critical interventions to support TZ in its efforts to contribute to the community

The primary use of UAVs during SAR operations is for Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISR), to serve the SAR mission of finding a target, fixing the target position, and finishing the rescue or recovery. UAV SAR missions do not easily fit into a ready-made template. They are as diverse as the SAR exercises and organizations they support -- ranging from quick response in confined hazardous environments to persistent observation of large areas over long periods of time.
