MQ-9 Reaper

MQ-9 Reaper      The MQ-9 Reaper is an armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long endurance remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) that is employed primarily in a hunter/killer role against dynamic execution targets and secondarily as an intelligence collection asset. Given its significant loiter time, wide-range sensors, multi-mode communications suite, and precision weapons -- it provides a unique capability to autonomously execute the kill chain (find, fix, track, target, execute, and assess) against high value, fleeting, and time sensitive targets (TSTs).
     Reapers can also perform the following missions and tasks: intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), close air support (CAS), combat search and rescue (CSAR), precision strike, buddy-laser, convoy/raid overwatch, route clearance, target development, and terminal air guidance. The MQ-9's capabilities make it uniquely qualified to conduct irregular warfare operations in support of Combatant Commander objectives.  MORE...

  • PFOS, PFOA Fact Sheet

    Subject:  Actions taken by the 111th Attack Wing (ATKW) to address PFOS/PFOA water contamination issues Background:  The 111th ATKW has been actively working to address water contamination issues at Biddle Air National Guard Base since they were first discovered and confirmed between 2012 and 2014.  The 111th has partnered with local communities, Navy, Air National Guard (ANG) and the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to address drinking water quality, and storm water run-off from the base.  Key Points: Presently, Biddle ANG Base/111th ATKW is in compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's lifetime health advisory (HA) level for PFOS and PFOA.  Where Department of Defense (DoD) is the known source of PFAS, no one - on or off-base - is drinking water above these levels. The DoD, USAF, ANG and Biddle ANG Base/111th ATKW are attempting to move forward in a systematic, enterprise-wide approach in their response to PFAS.  This approach requires extensive coordination with all parties to ensure consistency across all DoD installations.
