A U.S. Central Command electromagnetic team in Kuwait taught from Oct. 4th to 8th the first-ever class using a curriculum it developed for providing education on counter-unmanned aerial systems technologies.

The Task Force Phoenix’s (TFP) Cyberspace Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) Cell gave its first students from Camp Buehring lessons on the risk posed by rogue drones and the platforms used to defeat such threats, the U.S. Army said Monday.

During the five-day event, 16 Army and U.S. Air Force active and reserve personnel received briefings, as well as hands-on and virtual training, on various counter-drone systems used by the military from the CEMA cell and representatives from defense contractor Raytheon Technologies.

In creating the course, Capt. Jesse Rodeheaver, officer-in-charge for the Army Central Command Readiness Training Center, shared that the military training organization provided an audience and platform in which CEMA can distribute its expertise on CUAS and electronic warfare.

The TFP team will start the next class for counter-drone operations on Nov. 8th at Camp Buehring.
