CGD participates in Angel Thunder training exercise
Angel Thunder is one of the largest training exercises for personnel recovery operations. The training scenarios consist of life-like hostile situations in order to provide response personal and department officials training in this area and in emergency medical response.
For the exercise, CGD partnered with the Air Force Research Lab, the University of Toledo, Wright State Research Institute and the University of Neb. in order to develop the Love, Virtual and Constructive ground-based technology. This system allowed pararescue personnel and other first responders to perform the exercise and gave participants the chance to review their actions within the exercise and allow them to address how they conduct these kinds of operations.
Other participants involved in the event represented intelligence personnel, combat aircrews, battle managers and search and rescue personnel.
Angel Thunder, which took in New Mexico and Arizona, was organized by the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
CGD is a business unit of Cubic Corp. that specializes in providing highly specialized, realistic training courses that include simulations, scenarios and support services for response agencies and the military forces of the U.S. and its ally nations.
