Taffe III, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), intelligence analyst, launches an RQ-11 Raven small unmanned aircraft system during Raven sustainment and intelligence interoperability training as part of the MEU’s Realistic Urban Training at Fort Pickett, Va., Aug. 27, 2013. The Raven training allowed different elements within the battalion to learn how to effectively employ the vehicle’s capabilities. The MEU is scheduled to deploy in early 2014 to the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility with the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group as a sea-based, expeditionary crisis response force capable of conducting amphibious missions across the full range of military operations.
