Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Tactical Air Defense Services is strategically positioned to capitalize on the growing issue of wildfires in California as it has an exclusive 15 year lease agreement for the use of the only ILyushin IL-76 firefighting supertanker aircraft ever granted access into the United States. The Company plans to use its exclusive advantage to bid for contracts with state and federal agencies to help defeat the devastating fires.

Not only does Tactical Air Defense Services plan on generating revenue using its liscense to use the superior aircraft, it also plans to capitalize on the airborne support services market.

Tactical Air Defense Services (TADF.OB) is Ready to Provide Necessary support to US Armed Forces and its Allies

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Based out of Dallas, Texas, Tactical Air Defense Services provides aerial firefighting, air combat training, mid-air refueling, and other airborne support services to the US and other NATO governments. Their executive offices are located in Dallas, Texas and they operate a former US airbase in Denison, Texas. They hold numerous government security clearances and are certified as a private contractor.

Many Governments, including the US, are trending towards privatizing certain aspects of their military operations. Members of congress are also seeing the need to increase the budget as seen in Secretary of Defense Gate’s briefing earlier this year. Growing conflicts within Southwest Asia and other parts of the world are ever increasing the demand as well. The US defense Budget, according to a few reports, could grow to $600 billion by next year.

The company has the ability to Import implements of War (Pertaining to Aircraft and Aircraft Parts) into the US allowing them to operate and lease the Aircraft they obtain. To date TADF owns 2 MIG 29’s and four combat simulators along with one IL-76 and is in the process of acquiring three more. The IL-76 is configured for Air Combat Refueling and can refuel up to three Aircrafts at a time at a speed of 400 knots. Their 2 MIG 29’s used in the Combat training operations are the only fourth generation MIG 29’s available in the US. These aircrafts are used by many non US allied countries of the world. Ownership of these aircraft provides TADF with a significant competitive advantage.

The aging US refueling tankers and lack of has created a large supply shortage and problem for US Air force. Because of this shortage there is an immediate need to Out-source the Military’s refueling needs. US Air force representatives have already expressed interest in utilizing TADF’s IL-76 Refueling Aircraft as soon as it is operational.

Because of the lack of current training and support equipment in the US and its Allies, Tactical Air Defense Services stands ready to provide this necessary service. In addition to providing training through their Combat simulators, the company can also provide Red Air Aggressor squadrons due to their ownership of the MIG 29 aircraft. They aim to supply the US armed forces with a vast array training services and support services.

Tactical Air Defense Services is first in its industry created due to US armed forces and other Allies downsizing their fleets and increasing demands of military personnel in foreign wars. This has led the Government to look to the private sector to fill the gap. Having overcome much of the Entry Barriers in this industry, Tactical Air Defense Services sees itself as rightly positioned to provide the Air Combat and Air Refueling needs of the US armed forces and its allies well into the future.

Tactical Air Defenses, Inc. (TADF.OB) – A Tactical Niche

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

When a group of investors begin to investigate a promising prospect, one of the first things on the checklist of items to be researched is the “competition”. Let’s suppose for an instant that the investors were looking into a pizza chain. Naturally they’d want to see who’s already servicing the area, how many locations there are, what type of delivery vehicles are employed, etc. etc.

In fact, in very few segments of the business world is competition “not a problem”. Yet there are indeed times when a “niche” is encountered, and often enough the investors are quite excited about it. History shows us that companies that are “first movers” in a particular niche often dominate that niche market for long periods of time, and with substantial success.

Yet a familiar problem with some niche, or “one of a kind” type businesses, appears to be that the niche is so small that the market isn’t large enough to make a profitable foray into it feasibly. There is nothing substantially terrific about being the dominant company in a niche type sector that is so small, the returns aren’t worth the outlays.

But what if your group of investors does indeed stumble upon a niche business, yet one that services tens of thousands of people at the same time? What if the servicing of that market is so vital, so important, that it’s at times a literal matter of “life or death?” Then, what if the barriers to entry into that business were so steep, that only one company had the only true recipe for success? That would indeed be an interesting company. Enter Tactical Air Defense Services, which is a publicly traded company listed under the symbol TADF. This company is positioning itself to ultimately dominate several very interesting and vital niche markets, all at the very same time.

In the summer of 2007, California wildfires had wreaked havoc on the very peoples that lived there. Temperatures had soared to 110 degrees, and rainfall had fallen to almost nothing, turning tens of thousands of acres of woodlands into a tinder box. The Box ignited, and in just one weekend, more than 1,200 firefighters in Northern California’s Henry W. Coe State Park battled an 11,000-acre wildfire while to the south, in the Angeles National Forest, a four-day-old fire about 10 miles east of Santa Clarita grew to 2,100 acres. Firefighters were exhausted, some working around the clock for days. In separate fires, hundreds of homes went up in flames.

Tactical Air Defense Services is aligning itself to be a large part of the answer to such disasters. The company realized that the biggest lack of defenses that communities faced was not having a safe fire fighting supertanker aircraft that could disperse thousands of gallons of flame retardant or even plain water quickly and safely. In fact, most of the aircraft employed for such tasks were grounded in 2002 after finding that their structure couldn’t stand the stresses involved with such operations, and many succumbed to failure and crashed.

Tactical Air Defense Services seized on this situation by gaining exclusive licensing to the only ILyushin IL-76 firefighting supertanker aircraft ever granted access into the U.S.. The Ilyushin aircraft are the only planes ever built specifically for the purpose of aerial firefighting, and are recognized as far superior to any other aircraft in existence for this purpose. The IL-76 is recognized as the most effective fire fighting aircraft in the world, and the praise in the international press for the IL-76 as the savior of disastrous fires in Indonesia, Bulgaria, Russia, and Greece, is well-documented.

The ILyushin aircraft are dedicated water-bombers that are capable of quickly and efficiently disbursing large quantities of water or fire retardant to defeat the mind boggling damage from extensive forest fires anywhere that they might propagate. With rising temperatures and the courtesy of widespread global warming, the National weather service has declared that the violent fires such as seen in the summer of 2007 are going to become more frequent.

The interest in TADF’s airborne firefighting tactics from State and Federal Agencies has been intense. Experienced firefighters understand the immense benefit of having an aerial firefighting unit, capable of Slow flight and accurate dispersal of its payload. TADF is in the process of securing long term exclusive leasing not only on one, but on four of these supertankers. The effects will be staggering. As an example, four IL-76,s flying in slow formation over a raging fire can emit 72,000 gallons of water, spraying an area a mile and a half long and over a thousand yards wide. Chances are good that the future of wild fire fighting has been changed positively and permanently.

Considering that this is only one Niche segment of TADF’s business plan, it’s easy to see the implications for growth, demand, and success. Uncompromising focus on a particular need has yielded a tremendous answer to a savage problem. TADF and its investors will be well compensated for such intuitive thinking.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

Micros Report released a 10 page research stock report on Tactical Air Defense Services. The company is focused on providing aerial firefighting and air combat training services with intentions to seek contracts for mid-air refueling and other airborne services.

Because of the rising forest fire crisis in the Western U.S. and the unique capabilities of its ILyushin aircraft, Tactical Air Defenses has much potential to capitalize on the growing market.

Tactical Air Defenses is also well positioned in the air combat training market and is currently working on developing a contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to deliver air combat training and support. Neither the U.S. Department of Defense nor its allies have sufficient training, support equipment or personnel to meet demand.

The analyst who completed the report stated, “TADF expects to have their first IL-76 earning revenues by Q1 2008. The company also expects to add additional revenues each remaining quarter of the year by bringing an additional aircraft on-line to total 4 tankers earning revenues by Q4 2008. Through this plan, TADF management projects 2008 full year revenues to total roughly $29.7 million and profits to come in around $10.2 million.”
