Phoenix Rave Qualification Course students practice extending the Armament Systems and Procedures baton and getting into a defensive position ready to strike during the Phoenix Rave Qualification Course at the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center, Aug. 14, 2020, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey. The course, which ran from July 27 to Aug, 19, qualifies selected security forces personnel to perform as members of a force protection team assigned to deploy with Department of Defense aircraft to austere environments. Students are trained to perform as teams to detect, deter, and counter threats to personnel/aircraft at deployed locations by performing close-in aircraft security and advising aircrew on force protection measures. In addition, the course prepares students to conduct/report airfield assessments and perform flight deck denial duties on select missions. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj. George Tobias)
