From last summer, but still pertinent!

7/21/2021 - Note for CWN Assignments:  UAS and Aviation Leadership are re-emphasizing the necessity for a deliberate, conservative approach to aviation operations in 2021.  As a team, we must focus on safe and effective employment of UAS on incidents, including staying within system capabilities, upholding the airspace coordination standards we have in place, and maximizing the strengths of UAS sensors, platforms, and personnel.  CWN UAS operations will likely shift to periods where no other aircraft are over incidents.  Manager and Data Specialists should plan for real-time and near real-time intelligence with the gimballed sensor to be the focus of CWN employment.  Orthoimagery products may still be provided, but these should be a secondary focus and collected only when the situation and/or operational tempo are conducive for safe and effective acquisition.

Note for UASD Mobilization:  Depending on the situation, data specialists may or may not have access to fire camp amenities such as food, water, or restrooms.  UASDs should be prepared for self sufficiency on an assignment, especially if supporting Type 3 or 4 UAS modules.  Talk to the UASM or UASL before mobilizing to confirm expected arrangements for food and lodging.
