The U.S. Army has completed its New Equipment Training (NET) at Fort Campbell, Kentucky for the MQ-1C ER Gray Eagle Extended Range. The training covered new maintenance procedures, manuals and ground support equipment associated with the MQ-1C ER, which is a new Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) produced by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI).
The training not only prepared the current Army Company “ 160th Foxtrot “ to operate MQ-1C ER, it also prepared Echo Company to become the Armys second Company to be trained to operate the Gray Eagle Extended Range.
Adding a second Company to operate the MQ-1C ER is a testament to the confidence the Army has in the performance of this UAS, said David R. Alexander, president, GA-ASI. The MQ-1C ER provides significant enhancements in capability over the MQ-1C, delivering increased reliability, range and capacity for our Army customer over the previous version.
Hi-resolution photos of MQ-1C ER are available to qualified media outlets from the listed GA-ASI media contact.
