REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. — A shift in Army aviation strategy has led Staff Sgt. Brody Rasor to make a change in his military occupational specialty mid-way through his career.
With 12 years experience as an Army OH-58 Kiowa Warrior helicopter technician, Rasor is now setting his sights on becoming an unmanned aircraft vehicle operator. He made the career change after Army leadership decided to discontinue use of the Kiowa Warrior. The end of Kiowa helicopters comes as part of an Armywide shift in its helicopter fleet to cut costs and reduce the various types of helicopters in service.
WASHINGTON (Aug. 26, 2015) — With a pressing need for an improved AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel radar vehicle platform and no time to procure a new platform or radar, the Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, or PEO MS, teamed up with Letterkenny Army Depot, or LEAD, Pennsylvania, to modify an existing platform in what could be a model for partnership with the organic industrial base. This effort, which moves the Sentinel from a modified High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, or HMMWV, to the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles, or FMTV, platform without requiring modification of the radar itself, overcame a number of challenges and led to several process improvements for project and product offices to partner with Army depots.
