Recently, JBM Systems maintenance technicians supported Northern Strike 21-2 Exercise.
Northern Strike is a multi-component, multinational exercise designed to build readiness and enhance interoperability with allied forces to fight and win. Northern Strike 21-2, the Michigan National Guard’s largest and longest exercise designed to enhance and validate readiness of the joint reserve force, was held July 31, 2021 through August 14, 2021 at the National All-Domain Warfighting Center. This year’s iteration featured approximately 5,100 participants from 20 states and 4 coalition partners.
JBM employees’ vital performance facilitated Unmanned Aircraft Systems Ground-Based Detect and Avoid deployed system setup. They also provided expert troubleshooting to both the system itself and its connection to the Reaper Ground Control Station. Further, JBM’s lead Systems Maintenance Technician served as the primary interface with Air National Guard organizations from across the country and was instrumental in addressing numerous integration issues. JBM is proud of its long-standing, full spectrum support to Department of Defense Radar and Sensor systems, and the vital missions they perform. We are equally honored to have currently serving members of the U.S. Army and Air National Guard within our ranks of employees.
