An MQ-4C Triton Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) assigned to Unmanned Patrol Squadron 19 (VUP-19), taxis after landing on Andersen Air Force Base. VUP-19, the first Triton unmanned aircraft systems squadron, will operate and maintain aircraft in Guam as part of the MQ-4C’s initial operational capability (IOC). IOC is the first attainment of capability to employ the MQ-4C effectively by VUP-19 – achieved when the platform’s ability to enhance joint, distributed maritime intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting operations is demonstrated.
