Frankenphone 2.0: MQ-9 communication innovation

Capt. Abrham, 42nd Attack Squadron MQ-9 Reaper pilot, communicates with a joint terminal attack controller June 14, 2017, at Creech Air Force Base, Nev. Members of the MQ-9 community have used the Frankenphone to improve communications with the ground forces. In 2016, another member of the 42nd ATKS, Capt. Gregory, improved the design of the Frankenphone creating the 2.0 version which offered increased durability and sound clarity. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Christian Clausen)
