Brandon Daugherty, a Space Medical Contingency Specialist with the 45th Operations Group, Detachment 3, Human Spaceflight Support, talks to the team on the "Front Porch" floatation device that was unfolded and inflated by Pararescuemen and Combat Rescue Officers from the 103rd Rescue Squadron following a jump from the back of a C-17 at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, March 5, 2017. During this training, a rigid inflatible boat (known as a "Hard Duck") was dropped from a C-17 along with several jumpers and an inflatable device known as the "Front Porch".This device is intended to be mated to the Orion spacecraft, and can be used to support astronauts who have made a water landing in the Orion spacecraft following a flight.
