Advanced Technology Systems (ATS) was founded in 2003 by a group of
Americans who saw a unique opportunity to support the United States
and honor their heritage by assisting in the safe keeping,
rebuilding and rehabilitation of Iraq and other middle-eastern
countries like Afghanistan. Capitalizing on their backgrounds
in engineering and telecommunications, the team started a company
focused on connecting individuals, organizations and businesses in
and around Iraq then expanded to other countries like Afghanistan,
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait …etc.
Today, Advanced Technology Systems extend its services to Iraq,
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Lebanon, Kuwait, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus …etc.
ATS chose to partner with Hughes Network Systems to provide
high-speed Internet services and network communications solutions
using their satellite technology and state-of-the-art network. To
support their commitment to their customers, ATS established
facilities in Baghdad and Erbil, Iraq as well as Amman, Jordan in
addition to partners in all other countries of coverage. These sites
allow ATS to respond quickly in providing technical support and
on-site network consulting services.
Today, ATS operates hundreds of internet sites throughout Iraq,
Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and in all the other countries it covers
with its services, helping expatriates, troops, companies,
organizations and individuals to communicate with their loved ones
and conduct their business. Advanced Technology Systems is proud to
