ELS is a Defence and Homeland Security-focused training and consultancy organisation that, since 2005, has specialised in identifying, designing, and delivering a range of defence and homeland security related training interventions. ELS has considerable success in comprehensive training courses design and delivery, particularly in the Weapons, Ordnance, Munitions and Explosives (WOME) and Countering Improvised Explosive Devices (CIED) domains. This has been achieved through the combination of using core members of ELS staff, covering technical subject matter expertise (our authors/instructors), aligned with training process specialists (our project managers) into the internationally recognised Training Development Team (TDT) approach. The combination of ex-UK MOD Education and Training Services (ETS) Training Development Advisors (TDAs) and ex-defence WOME/CIED/IEDD/WIT technical author/instructor Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) has delivered numerous successful interventions across a range of CIED and WOME training requirements. ELS commonly work within recognised Defence training frameworks, such as the UK’s Defence Systems Approach to Training Quality Standard (DSAT QS – JSP 822) and similar systems employed by the military of other Nations, and all courses are designed by Suitably Experienced and Qualified Personnel (SQEP) author/instructors with comprehensive documentation development and configuration management applied throughout. ELS is an accredited training organisation with a number of national and international management competency bodies, and also delivers business development training courses to both Service Leavers and commercial clients

Jet Research Center (JRC) originated and introduced jet perforating to the energy industry-forever changing the was oil and gas are produced. Located on more than 800 acres in Alvarado, Texas, JRC’s Explosive Products Center is a fully integrated research, engineering, testing and manufacturing plat that produces advanced perforating systems and specialty explosive devices for the oilfield, including shaped charge perforators, RF-protected detonators, tubing and casing cutters, severing tools, and platform removal charges.
Research and Engineering
JRC’s premier technical staff includes a balance of engineers, designers, and technicians, who are among the most knowledgeable experts in the perforating industry. Their backgrounds range from doctoral and Master’s level engineers to highly skilled explosive technicians-some with more than 25 years’ experience. We utilize the latest technicians and equipment in our design work, including:
- Sophisticated hydrocodes such as DYNA-2D and CTH that model the high strain rate deformations of materials subjected to explosive loading.
- Analytical computer programs that predict the response of structures to explosive impulse loads.
- CHEETAH code for predicting state properties of reaching explosives and the resulting detonation products.
Our world-class Jet Research Center (JRC) and Advanced Perforating Flow Lab (APFL) comprise our Perforating Center of Excellence. Located in Alvarado, Texas, the JRC facility is capable of testing well environments over the widest dynamic measurement range of any test facility in the world.
We use rock, fluid, and mechanical analysis to provide the necessary information to design and execute your production, completion, and plug and abandonment strategies in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
We help to address the increasing complexity of your reservoirs through the in-depth dynamic understanding of charge and mechanical performance. This enhances the decision efficiency and effectiveness of the drilling, development, and end-of-well-life phase of your assets.
The JRC facility houses a full-service testing laboratory that offers advanced product testing and development services for perforating and pipe recovery systems.
- Reservoir rock property analyses
- Reservoir sanding analyses
- Explosive characterization and performance analyses
- HPHT testing services
