Abstract : The United States Air Force (USAF) at Tinker AFB, Oklahoma, trains USAF officers to fulfill the role of Weapons Directors (WDs) aboard the E-3B/C Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. The AWACS platform supports Command, Control and Communications (C3) missions in the airborne environment. USAF Armstrong Laboratory, Crew Technology Division, Sustained Operations Branch (AL/CFTO), in cooperation with Systems Research Laboratories, Inc. (SRL), configured WD crewstations and affiliated systems in the Aircrew Evaluation Sustained Operations Performance (AESOP) facility to run defensive counter air (DCA) mission simulations. Teams of three WDs detect, identify, intercept, and destroy enemy aircraft attempting to attack friendly forces or penetrate friendly airspace. A Senior Director (SD) serves as the immediate supervisor in the chain of command. In a DCA mission, the SD oversees and coordinates WD efforts to execute the directives of the senior battle staff
