Combat comm integrates with Ninth AF during STAFFEX 18-6
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgts. Kyle Mangold, back, and Joshua Tanner, 51st Combat Communications Squadron (CBCS) radio frequency transmissions systems techs, pack up a large aperture antenna following the conclusion of Staff Exercise 18-6, Sept. 28, 2018, Shaw Air Force Base, S.C. As part of the flexible communication package (FCP), the antenna provided internet services to the Ninth Air Force’s forward joint task force (JTF) headquarters for the duration of the exercise. The FCP supported not only network capabilities but voice and data as well, providing a “deployed” location for the forward JTF headquarters staff. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Amanda Dick)
