The MQ-1/MQ-9 Operations Branch (ACC/A3MU) is responsible for the organization, training, management, and provides the operational expertise required to meet current and future needs of MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper. The organization develops, coordinates, and publishes command guidance for all aspects of aircrew training in CAF RPA units.

Although the branch is funded and tasked specifically to support the Predator and Reaper, tasks extend to all fielded or un-fielded RPAs as determined by ACC/A3MU.
