Frankenphone: Creech Airman improves RPA communications
Staff Sgt. Marion, a 42nd Attack Squadron sensor operator, displays his invention, the “Frankenphone 3.5 Ultra High Definition,” March 24, 2015, at Creech Air Force Base, Nev. The Frankenphone gets its name because of the way it’s patched together from decommissioned pieces of equipment. It’s a simple design, but the Frankenphone improves air-to-ground communications by putting the aircrew and joint terminal attack controllers on a party line, mitigating the need to repeat messages numerous times and improving communications clarity. This in turn allows operators to seamlessly execute the mission and save lives. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Christian Clausen)
