The Technical Service should not be confused with the Service Section of the Technical Staff (TS). The TS consists of higher technically (university) trained officers. This relatively small part of the Technical Troops often carries out projects such as tenders and modifications in the technical field. The TS also has a different beret emblem. This consists of the gearwheel containing a lion with a sword and arrows. The color of the logo background is red, in contrast to the black of the technical department.
