    Joint Force Headquarters, Pennsylvania National Guard

    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Army National Guard G-6 (signal staff) sent 11 signal leaders, representing each brigade in the 28th Infantry Division, the division headquarters, the Mission Training Complex (MTC) and the Joint Force Headquarters G-6 to the 10th annual Mission Command Workshop May 5-10 at the Professional Education Center (PEC) on Camp Robinson, Arkansas.

    Among them was Capt. Sean Orabona, the JFHQ G-6 Tactical division chief, who gave a presentation to a national audience on Armory as a Docking Station or AaaDS.

    AaaDS is a relatively new transport system that serves two functions. It allows units to connect their tactical systems (ex: battalions to brigade) over the SIPRnet in their home armory and it facilitates easier updating and patching of their tactical systems.

    Orabona is responsible for fielding these systems in Pennsylvania, one of the first states to roll it out. Nationally, only 13 states have AaaDS online and operational. Orabona successfully used the system to connect a field artillery battalion in Pennsylvania to one in Colorado and conducted simulated fire missions. When complete, every battalion headquarters and above will have an AaaDS installed.

    The annual G6 Mission Command Workshop addresses the challenges of training and maintaining Mission Command Readiness in an M-Day environment. Focus areas include equipment readiness, domestic operations, signal training, and mobilization.
