Small UAS Tech Supports Training Exercises at Fort Irwin

FortIrwinUASThe National Training Center at Fort Irwin currently holds training exercises to evaluate a small unmanned aerial vehicle that will work to gather intelligence on adversaries for cyber operators and military intelligence personnel.

The U.S. Army Cyber Command said Friday Maj. Deonand Singh, operations officer for the 781st military intelligence battalion at Fort Meade, noted that the collected information will ultimately serve to provide tactical insights to brigade commanders.

The test team has used the small UAS to support the 1st Infantry Division’s 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team at Fort Riley on a two-week training rotation at NTC earlier this month, Army Cybercom added.

Lt. Col. Jon Burnett, Army Cybercom chief of cyber support to corps and below at Fort Belvoir, said the unmanned vehicle conducted reconnaissance tasks to get information on the training scenario’s operational information environment.
