05 Aug 2007

A Control and Reporting Centre (CRC) established by Air Force personnel at Kandahar Airfield took over the management of an assigned area of Afghanistan’s operational air space in support of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force battling Taliban extremists. Using a state-of-the-art TPS-77 radar, the CRC assumed responsibility for coordinating and deconflicting coalition air operations, including surveillance and air-to-air refuelling, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
