Strategos International

History of Strategos International

For the Record
All doctrine currently used by Strategos International is not “ours”…it is not anybody’s…
It is simply a reflection of what is in the environment, revealed through many years of intense training and actual operations.

Our approach is based on concepts and strategies developed by greater warriors who have treaded the earth before our time. It will change over time, hopefully in a positive manner as we interact with those in harms way and find more efficient ways of training and operating.

The format in which we reveal that reality is simply our style…one style of many acceptable styles.

We initially focused on reduced illumination environments and still maintain an extremely strong commitment in this area of study. However, we have incrementally added additio-nal focus areas as time and resources have permitted. We are passionate about our presentations and endeavor to approach all training sessions as servants to those who are on the leading edge of the friction.

Strategos International strives to maximize ones understanding of human conflict and dramatically improve their operational capabilities. The Strategos International staff regularly travels throughout the United States and abroad to deliver custom designed training packages.

Staff members regularly serve in a consulting capacity for law enforcement agencies, military units and private companies that require our unique services.

Our staff has been or is currently involved in law enforcement and military operations.
We know and depend on the products we sell. In some cases we had a strong influence on their design.

We have designed our own family of illumination tools primary designed for use in
high threat environments. They will be released under the brand name “Night-Ops”
