Specific Objectives: 

Provide training that develops the capability for F-15Es to Find, Fix, Track, Target, Engage and Assess multiple UAS targets during a three day period.  Current F-15E simulators do not have the capability to replicate the specific threat systems utilized in this live fly training.

Provide training that allows F-15E aircrew to utilize on board sensors to detect and track an air picture consisting of multiple Group 2 and 3 UASs along a single threat axis during a VUL.

Provide training that presents representative communication with outside agencies to build the UAS kill chain.

Provide training that allows F-15E aircrew to utilize on board systems to target Group 2 and 3 UASs out to a 30-50 nautical mile distance.

The expected level of proficiency at training completion is that each Airman has the capability to perform the above tasks at a basic skill level individually and perform the above tasks as part of an integrated team.”
