The training objective of any combat unit is for the unit to be able to conduct combined arms training (CAT). The SUAS aircrew training program focuses on individual and crew training. Once the unit establishes individual and crew training programs, it must integrate them into an effective collective training program. TC 3-04.62 links individual and unit collective tasks. The design and management of an effective training program requires the commander to analyze each of these elements. The mission essential task list identifies collective training and defines the unit as a member of the combined arms team. To ensure the combat proficiency of Army SUAS operators in the combined arms effort, individual proficiency in tasks required to operate an SUAS is essential.
