About Xe Services

Academi tries to take a scholarly approach to military contracting. The company (formerly Xe Services, and before that, Blackwater Worldwide) has narrowed its focus to become primarily a provider of military and technical training services for counterterrorism operations, force protection, law enforcement agencies, and other private security operations. – more... As Blackwater Worldwide, public scrutiny of its military work during the US-led invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan forced an image re-do. In 2010 Academi was acquired by investor group USTC Holdings for about $200 million.

In an effort to win more government business, Academi has formed a network of companies and subsidiaries. Its US Training Center, through its joint venture International Development Solutions (IDS), teamed with seven other firms to win the Worldwide Protective Services job in the West Bank from the US State Department in early 2011.

Academi's resume includes work for the US Department of Defense's Counter Narco-Terrorism Technology Program Office, the Global Peacekeeping Operations Initiative, and the US Department of State's Anti-Terrorism Assistance Programs. Prince, a former Navy Seal, started the company in 1997. – less
