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-3BC 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 ALCFTO, 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
