The RQ-11 Raven is controlled by two operators: the vehicle operator and the mission operator. The VO operates the camera and can fly the aircraft into a position to better utilize the onboard camera. The MO follows the aircraft on a moving map ensuring the VO is gathering intelligence on the right objective. In this photo Staff Sgt. Jonathan Courdin with Alpha Company 2nd Battalion, 121 Infantry Regiment, prepares to launch the Raven and conduct his duties as the MO while Spc. Orlando Lopez with Alpha Troop, 3-108th Cavalry Squadron, Reconnaissance and Surveillance prepares to conduct his duties as the VO while training at Fort Stewart, Ga. this April.
