EDOT is no stranger to operations in Iraq; they were the prime contractor for the Iraqi Defence Network (IDN) Communications Project, which aims to provide a nationwide, robust, reliable, and secure data network for the Iraqi Ministry of Defence. The Iraqis will assume full operational control in 2008. Security services are also part of EODT’s portfolio – but that kind of work does come with casualties.
