Abstract:

The procedures involved in management of the airspace above a combat zone are not well understood. The Joint Staff is in the process of publishing the manual JOINT PUB 3-52, Doctrine for Joint Airspace Management in a Combat Zone. This manual establishes as doctrine procedures that have been successful in the past. This study looks at the various airspace management systems used by the military in an attempt to understand how they operate. JOINT Pub 3-52 is discussed and requirements to support the joint force commander are defined. Each services airspace management system is then analyzed to see if it can support joint operations. Emphasis is placed on the Armys system and how it supports combat operations. Potential shortfalls are identified as well as solutions recommended.
