Ron Alberto listen as Gene Curran, left, explains the design process for the Unmanned Aircraft Systems and how it evolved from the depot-designed Universal Power Pack System during her recent visit to Tobyhanna Army Depot. “Employees here designed and fabricated the tactical power generator trailer used on the UAS SHADOW system,” said Curran, a mechanical engineer who works in the Production Engineering Directorate’s Design and Development Branch.
