Abstract:

The 53rd Weapons Evaluation Group WEG proposes to replace one of the existing subscale drone recovery boat docks at Tyndall Air Force Base AFB to better support the Air Force Subscale Aerial Target AFSAT program. During aquatic recoveries of drones, the drone is retrieved from the water by the Missile Retriever MR boat and is transported by the MR boat to the Drone Water Recovery Center DWRC docking facility. The drone recovery dock proposed to be replaced at the DWRC docking facility is deteriorated and damaged beyond repair due to the effects of old age, salt, and hurricanes. In addition to its poor condition, the dock is undersized for adequate docking of the MR boats.
