103rd Rescue Squadron Assists NASA during SENTRY ALOHA
Pararescuemen and combat rescue officers with the New York Air National Guard's 103rd Rescue Squadron, 106th Rescue Wing, supported by the Hawaii Air National Guard's 154th Wing, 204th Airlift Squadron, conduct personnel recovery training in order to test the new "Front Porch" flotation device for NASA's Orion Crew Module. This training was conducted alongside NASA personnel during Exercise Sentry Aloha at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, March 7, 2017. A major element of this two week temporary duty 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.
