103rd SFS exercise patrolling techniques

Senior Airman Andrew J. Brown, a fire team member with the 103rd Security Forces Squadron, consults his “DAGR”, also known as the defense advanced GPS receiver as the map-and-compass operator during a patrolling exercise at Bradley Air National Guard Base, East Granby, Conn. May 1, 2010. The DAGR is the newest GPS and tracks as many satellites as it can find allowing the user to input a grid coordinate off of a topographical map, said Tech. Sgt. Marc Cioto, trainer for the 103rd Security Forces. “So basically, you can plot a number of waypoints and input them into a route then follow the route,” said Cioto. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech.
