U.S. Army troops have completed a two-weekÂ training exercise on air and missile defense planning control systems at Helemano Military Reservation in Hawaii.
The 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command’s Sea Dragons set up and validated the mission command system, described the air defenders’ functions to senior leaders and verified proof of systems during the event, the Army said Monday.
“The intent of this exercise was to build an expeditionary capability with the AMDPCS equipment,” said Capt. Nathan Pototschnik, officer-in-charge of the exercise.
“It could potentially serve two purposes: tactical, if we were to deploy and set the system up somewhere because we didn’t have hardened facilities to fall in on, or contingency, in the event that a natural disaster happened and we needed to set up our systems on the island,” Pototschnik added.
AMDPCS works to collect air defense feeds from alternate sources.
