Air traffic control and communications

Air Force can provide mobile communications support during disaster relief operations, including radio systems, information systems and air traffic control systems, from established Air Force bases and remote locations anywhere in the world.

Air Force Air Traffic Controllers are highly trained to provide integrated civil/military air traffic services - making them adaptable and able to manage traffic flow at airports to ensure emergency assistance is received and moved quickly.

The rapid establishment of reliable communication systems makes it easy to exchange information, which is critical to the effectiveness of humanitarian operations.
