EAST GRANBY, Conn. – The Connecticut National Guard’s 103rd Airlift Wing at Bradley Air National Guard Base is using computer-generated imagery to enhance readiness.

In 2021, the wing used innovation funds to purchase a driving simulator. The simulator, used by members of multiple units in the 103rd, enables members to practice driving maneuvers in various military vehicles through different courses and scenarios. The simulator helps Airmen and Soldiers become more comfortable driving large vehicles, such as fuel trucks, which are common in many units across the Guard.
