    Tech Sgt. Shane Brickey, an evaluater and pararescueman with the 88th Test and Evaluation Squadron, provides training on how to properly inflate the "Front Porch" floatation device from the Orion spacecraft. This piece of Ground Support Equipment (GSE) can be used to support astronauts who have made a water landing in the Orion spacecraft following a flight.

    Members of the New York Air National Guard's 106th Rescue Wing, including Pararescuemen, Combat Rescue Officers, Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape specialists from the 103rd Rescue Squadron, as well as combat support team personnel conduct training with NASA personnel at Joint Base Pearl Horbor-Hickam, Hawaii during Exercise SENTRY ALOHA March 2, 2017. A major element of this two week TDY is to participate in a joint NASA and Defense Department mission to evaluate recovery techniques and gear that will be used to recover NASA's Orion spacecraft, the next generation of American space vehicle.
