1 UNCLASSIFIED Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Professional Development Center (NMOPDC) UAS Support: A Training Perspective William Stamper NMOPDD Atlantic 13 March March UNCLASSIFIED

2 Introduction: Training and UAS? 13 March UNCLASSIFIED Key Considerations METOC support role WRT increased UAS presence Training response to support requirement Today’s Discussion Forecast Considerations Tactical Considerations The way ahead RQ-21A INTEGRATOR STUAS

3 UNCLASSIFIED Forecast Considerations 13 March UNCLASSIFIED 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

4 UNCLASSIFIED Tactical Considerations & Training Challenges 13 March UNCLASSIFIED 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

5 UNCLASSIFIED The Way Ahead… 13 March UNCLASSIFIED 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

6 UNCLASSIFIED The Way Ahead… 13 March UNCLASSIFIED 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) MQ-8B FIRESCOUT VTUAV PDD SMEs assist with sensor/system/target updates

7 UNCLASSIFIED Better Education Through Visualization… 13 March UNCLASSIFIED

8 The Way Ahead… 13 March UNCLASSIFIED 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

9 UNCLASSIFIED A Note on Reach-Back 13 March 2012 UNCLASSIFIED 9 Five Cornerstones for Effective RB Support

10 UNCLASSIFIED 13 March 2012 UNCLASSIFIED 10 Questions?
