Abstract:

The Tactical Air Operations Center TAOC has the ability to manage the Marine Air Ground Task Force MAGTF deep fight and the TAOC provides the Aviation Combat Element ACE commander with extensive capabilities and flexibility in controlling the deep battle and prosecuting time sensitive targets TSTs. This provides the ACE Commander the ability to shape the MAGTF battle space and impose his will directly on the enemy through the effective use of Deep Air Support DAS. The ACE does this in the close battle already using organic agencies within the Marine Air Command and Control System MACCS and with the Forward Air Controller Airborne FACA and the Tactical Air Controller Airborne TACA. The MACCS consists of various command and control agencies that the ACE Commander uses to monitor, supervise, and influence the application of DAS from the Tactical Air Command Center TACC.
