    U.S. Marines with Detachment A, Marine Air Control Squadron 4, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, built a solar powered device made of old military parts to power an AN/TRN-47 Deployable Beacon-Transponder, which provides tactical air navigation services. The device was designed by GySgt. Michael Ott and was tested for the first time during Exercise Balikatan 2015. The system saved the Marines of the detachment hours of work, man power, and hundreds of gallons of generator fuel. Balikatan is an annual Philippines-U.S. military training exercise and humanitarian assistance engagement, which highlights the long standing partnership between both nations.
