EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. --
A new joint-service, large-scale test called Emerald Flag will come to Eglin Air Force Base this December.
This inaugural event, hosted by Team Eglin, will incorporate ground, space, and air platforms and provide operational and experimental exercise scenarios.
“Emerald Flag seeks to provide customers a target rich, data driven framework for experimentation and testing,” said Capt. Alexander Hillman, 46th Test Squadron.
The goal of the exercise is to link real-world systems together to demonstrate joint and all-domain operational capabilities, while identifying tangible shortcomings to these systems in a realistic operating environment.
Customers interested in participating can bring their specific test needs and requirements to the event for integration into vignettes with experimentation and testing.
Another goal of the exercise event is to offer a quarterly event with new customers, scenarios and requirements in the future.
