I've banged on Force Design 2030. Gotta give credit on how they're doing work with Man Portable Drones! VERY WELL DONE!

 Word came that the Russians were doing work with drones and had setup a school house.  I asked if we had something similar for our man portable drone operators.

Can't speak about what the other services are doing but a Marine had this to say...

Yes we do. Currently its a roughly 2-3 week course for smaller drones(think squad level), month for bigger (plt/company/bn level). Then you’re going to do OJT stuff in different field events. 1/6, we had a dronefex where we took all the operators out, and got into the weeds on employment(offsets, not directly overflying objs, ROZ, deconfliction, employment of fires, ways to actually talk on,, ways to bring the drone back and observe if they’re being followed, best ways to counter other suas, ect.). If you’re going to use assets, like anything you have to make a realistic training program even if you have a school house

If you've been on my blog for more than 5 minutes then you know I've banged on Force Design 2030 hard.

It is what it is.

But when they're doing good shit I gotta shout that to the roof tops too.

This is good shit.

Very well done.  Even better?  The Aussies are big into this too so we should see a bit of cross pollination.  From what I can tell (and this is just from my seat), the Aussies are real aggressive in how they push these small drones, maybe even world leaders.  The sharing of ideas will be big.
