ION Services, Incorporated is an American private military company (PMC). It is better known by its former name of Black Element. It is the main focus of the ArmA II: Private Military Company DLC addon.


ION Services, Incorporated has operated in numerous areas of operations, including Takistan, Tajikistan, Chernarus, and Lingor Island, in addition to many others.


ION Services, Incorporated was founded in South Carolina in September 1998, as an aviation security corporation, then-named, Black Element. In 2002, ION Services, Incorporated expanded its contractors for work in other fields. The company flourished for years, becoming the largest private military company based in the United States of America. However, in 2009, ION Services, Incorporated was struck by a series of controversies, including the death of several Chernarussian civilians in Elektrozavodsk, as well as being accused to attempting a coup d'état against Queen Isabella Ximénez of Sahrani in 2007. Due to these controversial accusations, then-Black Element "re-branded" its corporate image on October 1, 2010, primarily by changing its name to its current form of, ION Services, Incorporated.
