TNT 12-1 featured three intricate experiments that developed force protection, over-the-horizon tactical communications, and situational awareness capabilities, as well as mission-based experimentation (MBE) and capability-based experimentation (CBE). 714 participants were present at Camp Roberts, representing 90 companies, 80 government organizations, and 13 universities. USSOCOM’s Science and Technology (S&T) Director and S&T representatives from each of SOCOM’s component services attended this event, as well as representatives from NORTHCOM, CENTCOM, and PACOM. Manned and unmanned aircraft executed over 90 sorties. Some of the exciting new developments that occurred during this round of TNT were the first flight of a UAV with an actual explosive warhead, an elaborate, multi-day combat search and rescue (CSAR) scenario, and the presence of the Research and Experimentation for Local and International Emergency and First-responders (RELIEF) experiment during MBE week. Ad hoc experiments are an invaluable aspect of the TNT experience, and they often make up around 20% of the total experiment schedule. This trend continued this quarter as 28 ad hoc experiments were created and documented.
