Introduction: Training and UAS?

  • Key Considerations

  • METOC support role WRT increased UAS presence

  • Training response to support requirement


  • Today’s Discussion

  • Forecast Considerations

  • Tactical Considerations

  • The way ahead


Forecast considerations

Forecast Considerations

  • Traditional forecast parameters still apply (winds-vis-precip)

  • Greater forecast fidelity required

  • Tighter (and more) thresholds

  • Additional forecast considerations

    • Operating with other aircraft (OP zones, etc.)

    • Specific launch and recovery envelopes and requirements such as pitch and roll

    • Orbit stand-off ranges driven by the environment

    • UAS missions often planned far in advance


Tactical considerations training challenges

Tactical Considerations & Training Challenges

  • TDAs:

    • Deeper understanding of sensors, systems, capabilities

    • AREPS/TAWS: sensor/system updates; program improvements (e.g., AREPS evap duct calc)

    • Other TDAs: load approval, incorporate into training

  • Other training and support issues/gaps

    • Many customers don’t grasp METOC support extent

    • Many METOC do not understand UAS depth

    • Non-POR sensors and systems (e.g., SCAN EAGLE)

    • UHF LOS Comms


The way ahead

The Way Ahead…

  • Our training efforts continue

    • AREPS and TAWS Primer updates

    • Teams get flexed in our Team Trainer events

    • Advanced training classes in the works (?)

    • Deeper training on NAAPS, COAMPS, other forecast-related tools & products

    • Continued emphasis on forecaster interaction

  • Continued collaboration with key players

    • Software developers

    • UAS teams/developers/R&D


The way ahead1

The Way Ahead…

  • Continue our role as a conduit for product improvement

    • Assist Fleet users in getting requests to the right folks

    • Continue support advocacy (new sensors/systems)


  • PDD SMEs assist with sensor/system/target updates


Better education through visualization

Better Education Through Visualization…


The way ahead2

The Way Ahead…

  • Reach Back DOES work…

    • AREPS and TAWS RB has shifted (or will soon) to the FWCs in Norfolk and San Diego

    • FNMOC maintains some of their role

    • PDDs play a major part in training/sustaining the RB personnel
