The center offers cradle-to-grave ESS technical services and, when requested, will survey, design, procure, install, test and maintain systems worldwide. Any U.S. government agency in need of physical and/or electronic security systems should contact the ESC to discuss individual requirements and available engineering technical support and contracting opportunities. 

The ESC team works with customers and in-house contracting teammates to develop requirements and issue a Request for Proposal (RFP), resulting in a task order award to a pre-qualified contractor offering the best value to the government.

The ESC also delivers ESS Design Courses, Integrated Commercial Intrusion Detection System (ICIDS) operator and system administration courses, ESS site survey training and acceptance testing courses for the Army and other U.S. government agencies.
