Members assigned to the 386th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron structures unit supported the U.S. Army 3-2 Air Defense Artillery Battalion by creating an elevated foundation for an AN/MQP-64 Sentinel radar system at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait, Nov. 23, 2020. The elevated structure will increase the unit’s detection range for unmanned aerial systems, in turn, expediting a short-range air defense weapons response.
