    WASHINGTON, D.C. – An in-depth article about Civil Air Patrol’s Surrogate UAS program, posted on the website for Bard College’s Center for the Study of the Drone, chronicles the creation and service of CAP’s Surrogate Predators, which are used to train JTACs and other ground personnel for combat. Using volunteers, these modified Cessnas have saved the U.S. Air Force hundreds of thousands of dollars since the program began in 2009. Learn more about the Surrogate UAS program in Dan Gettinger’s story, posted Monday on the drone center site.
