A Joint Precision Airdrop System drops from an MV-22 Osprey during testing of the system Aug. 26, 2014, at Yuma Proving Ground, Ariz. The JPADS systems use GPS, a modular autonomous guidance unit, or MAGU, a parachute and electric motors to guide cargo within 150 meters of their target points. Marine Corps Systems Command fielded the last of 162 JPADS to the fleet in April, turning the page from acquisition to sustainment of the system for the Corps. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt.
