MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. --
The missile standardization, evaluation and training assessment team from the 20th Air Force headquarters completed its annual assessment of the 91st Space Wing Wednesday.
The purpose of an MSET is to provide the 20th Air Force commander with an assessment of a unit's standardization; evaluation; training processes and programs; and technical proficiency and support.
"In laymen's terms an MSET is where the 20th Air Force does an assessment of missile operations, maintenance, security and communications," said Lt. Col. Luis Rojas, 91st Space Wing director of staff and chief of plans and inspections. "Basically, our instructors and evaluators are observed giving instruction and evaluations."
The 91st SW's operations, maintenance and security forces were also evaluated in the four functional areas.
"There are a few changes this year to the assessment," said Lt. Col. Bart Beisner, MSET team chief. "This year more weight was put on technical proficiency. Also, evaluations were more randomized."
At the out-brief, awards were given in recognition of outstanding individual and team performance. In all, 27 performers and 20 teams were recognized.
Overall, the wing earned a "Satisfactory" rating on the MSET. One of the functional areas, technical proficiency, earned an "Excellent" rating.
In addition, a helicopter maintenance standardization evaluation yielded an "Outstanding."
"We're glad the MSET team was here," said Colonel Rojas. "It was another set of eyes to ensure our training and evaluation programs are top-notch in order to maintain the proficiency of our operators, maintainers, and security and communications personnel at the highest level possible."
