The MQ-4C Triton UAS has arrived in Guam for its initial deployment in the US Navy’s Pacific theatre.

Unmanned Patrol Squadron 19, the first Triton UAS squadron, will operate and maintain two aircraft as part of an early operational capability to further develop the concept of operations and fleet learning associated with operating a high-altitude, long-endurance system in the maritime domain.

The Tritons will be based out of Andersen Air Force base and operated by Commander, Task Force 72, lead for patrol, reconnaissance and surveillance forces in the 7th Fleet.

The MQ-4C Triton will conduct ISR missions that will complement the P-8A Poseidon and will bring increased persistence, capability and capacity through its multi-sensor mission payload. Initial operational capability will include four air vehicles with capacity to support 24/7 operations.
