Committed to the warfighter, Coastal Defense Inc. provided 30 hours of surrogate unmanned aerial system support during United States Air Force’s Air Combat Command Exercise ATLANTIC STRIKE 11-01. Conducted at Avon Park Air-Ground Training Complex, Avon Park, FL, ATLANTIC STRIKE is designed to provide realistic training in the conduct of the counter-land close battle for Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) and Joint Fires Observers (JFO). The goal of ATLANTIC STRIKE is to train participants to effectively integrate Close Air Support across a broad spectrum of activity with special emphasis on digitally-aided voice and data transfer, and full motion video technology. To help meet this training goal, Coastal Defense Inc. equipped each of the 16 multi-national JTAC/JFO teams with the Multi-Band Video Receiver IV (MVR IV) demonstrating its unique mounted and dismounted capabilities.
