Weber (right), the 25-year-old MISO non-commissioned officer in charge and a native of Rochester, N.Y., both with the Command Element, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, test a Long Range Acoustic Device 100x from the inside of an MV-22 Osprey with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), 31st MEU, here, Sept. 17. The team tested the device to ensure it could be operated effectively over the noise of the Osprey. Two LRAD devices were tethered together in order to boost the volume and compensate for the surrounding aircraft noise. The LRAD met expectations by providing a crisp, clear message over the sound of the aircraft’s rotors from more than 500 meters away. The 31st MEU is currently conducting their regularly scheduled Fall Patrol. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness for the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU.
