Our story

The IDIS Story

IDIS founder and owner Brian Parker is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Army Special Operations Community. While on active duty in the Army, Brian uncovered a lack of direction in military freefall training underscored by a failure to isolate the true needs of the active fighter. He pulled from his own experiences and lessons learned from combat jumps to author the Advanced Tactical Infiltration Course (ATIC), which set Department of Defense standards. He also pioneered many of the techniques and procedures currently utilized by U.S. Special Operations units.

The curriculum offered through IDIS Corp is rooted in the tactics and SOPs Brian established during his time in the army. He and the IDIS team continue to grow and expand their services and improve upon current courses to account for changing technology and operational requirements, as well as varying political and mission environments.
