On March 25, AOC Mountain-Western Regional Director Wayne Shaw visited with the Southwestern Crows at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR). Pictured left to right are Program Manager Kurt Austin, Chapter President Andreas Schmidt, Wayne Shaw and Jorge Salinas. Jorge, a chapter member and a EE by training, served as an outstanding tour guide of the Electro-Magnetic Vulnerability Assessment Facility (EMVAF) at White Sands Missile Range – a truly underutilized national asset that can be used for more than just testing US Army platforms. Kurt added valuable programmatic insights to the EMVAF tour. Later, Andreas led Wayne on a tour of the WSMR "Pod Shop" examining the build-up and maintenance of several high-end electronic attack (EA) pods used in testing at the WSMR. Wayne also had a chance to pitch the value of AOC membership to several future Young Crows assembled at the WSMR Pod Shop.
