Northrop Grumman Corporation recently provided simulated training at its Distributed Training Center (DTC) to Army Rangers from the 2nd Ranger Battalion at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. The virtual training, given to Rangers with Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC) certification, simulated actual battle scenarios for deployment locations.
The DTC, along with Joint Base Lewis McCord's 5th Air Support Operations Squadron, created specific scenarios requested by the Army Rangers.
The Ranger training utilized Combat Air Force and Close Air Support (CAS) assets on the Distributed Mission Operations Network (DMON) via the DTC, which ensures that the training is comprehensive, immersive and extremely robust. Northrop Grumman's DMON DTC designed, developed and executed the CAS deployment training for JTAC-certified Rangers.
