Back to InsightsAugust 18, 2021
On 14 Aug 21, members of EEI Asset Protection Solutions (APS) supported No 2620 (County of Norfolk) Sqn of the RAuxAF during a training weekend.
While RAuxAF personnel were between training serials, EEI APS delivered a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) capability brief culminating in a demonstration of how small RPAS can be used to enhance the Force Protection role. Modern technology such as this can enhance situational awareness to the entire command chain through live streaming capability; it provides future-proof intelligence and information dissemination.
The successful demonstration gave an insight into how small RPAS can be used as force multipliers within modern-day conflict and enhance the RAF Regiment’s operational output. The training serials and RPAS capability demos were observed by senior leaders from the RAF leadership: Air Marshal Sir Chris Harper KBE – 2620 Sqn’s Honorary Air Commodore; Group Captain Dutch Holland, Station Commander at RAF Honington; and Sqn Ldr Jules Gavers, the Officer Commanding of 2620 (County of Norfolk) Sqn RAuxAF.
