MWD handlers from the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, Koku Jieitai (Japan Air Self-Defense Force), and RAAF were able to demonstrate the capabilities of their respective MWDs as well as learn each others’ tactics, techniques, and procedures in order to better integrate with each other should the need arise.
