After adequate implementation of this transformation, LCIT and DOT leaders will conduct Critical Task/ Site Selection Boards to make final course corrections and ensure our training reflects the latest field requirements
LCIT leaders expanded both WOBC courses and enhanced the emphasis of each on their respective core Network Operations areas: Global Information Grid Enterprise Management for 255N and GIG Information Dissemination Management/ Content Staging for 255A.
LCIT leaders designed this phasing strategy to its courses in 2006 to better accommodate the ARNG and USAR warrant officers.
Particular emphasis has been placed by the LCIT and SIT leadership on ensuring hands-on reinforcement of technical concepts will be provided by labs given to both the FA24s and their Warrant Officer partners, the 250N Network Management Technicians, allowing leveraging of the significant infrastructure investment in SIT laboratory facilities.
As the program continues to grow and evolve, LCIT will continue to support it with appropriate resources and leadership emphasis.

The LCITS system enables pilots to designate a target, fire a rocket and move on to the next threat.
Raymond Schreiner, a developmental test pilot from China Lake's Naval Air Warfare Center's Weapons Division in California, fired a prototype LCITS weapon and witnessed the LCITS' capability firsthand.
"The LCITS technology appears to be well suited for engaging multiple, high-speed seaborne targets in a very short period of time."
Managed by ONR's Naval Air Warfare and Weapons Department as a Future Naval Capability (FNC), LCITS equips the unguided Hydra-70 rocket with a low-cost imaging infrared guidance solution to more accurately strike an intended target.
Steve Smolinski, Office of Transition FNC director, explained the importance of the FNC program to fulfilling naval missions such as LCITS.
Once locked onto the target, the weapon follows the LCITS commands to the target.
