Air Force and Marine Command and Control

Gonzales-Devalle said, "We provide air support, so pilots can provide continuous air support to ground commanders. Without our job, troops on the ground wouldn't get the proper air support in a timely manner." (Stannard, 2011,"606th ACS supports Operation New Dawn," para. 1) The Air Force’s Control and Reporting Center and the Marine’s Tactical Air Operations Center are the only two of their kind in the military. These units are deployable throughout the world. Both are Battle Space Management platforms and support planning and execution of military exercises and warfare. The two systems can operate by themselves or with other Command and Control units. These squadrons have many differences and similarities based on their locations, radios, and radar specifications. The locations for these two military systems are strategically placed. “The first Air Force Command and Control Center was located at Turner Air Force Base, Albany, Georgia.” (Eglin.AF.mil, 2011) Currently, there are four Active Duty Air Control Squadrons located in Mt. Home, Idaho; Ogden, Utah; Destin, Florida; Phoenix Arizona, and eight different locations within the Air National Guard. In addition, there are two locations in Europe Spangdahlem, Germany and Aviano, Italy. “The Marines first Controlling Center was, located in Yuma, Arizona in 1958.” (Rhodes, 1997) Likewise the Control and Reporting Center, they have different TAOCs located throughout the United States in Yuma, Arizona; Cherry Point, North Carolina; Aurora, Colorado; Great Lakes, Illinois, and Virginia. In contrast, the United States Marine Corps only has one overseas location in Okinawa, Japan compared to the two overseas locations the Air Force has. The Control and Reporting Center and Tactical Air Operation Center own and operate their very own…...

Command and Control for Public Services

...Command And Control In Public Services Command and control is used within all public services in order to carry out tasks/operations in an effective, efficient and proper manner. Without command and control, the public services would not function properly and the employees within those public services would not be able to carry out their roles and responsibilities properly. It is important that all public services employees are over trained in their job just in case they need to work in a situation on their own without anyone else telling them what to do. For example, if a member of the ambulance service is by himself/herself and comes across an individual who has been run over, they must know exactly what to do and how to cope alone, and this is an example of why it is important for the public services to be over trained in their job. Every public service carry out different roles and responsibilities and it is through command and control that the individual is able to carry out their daily tasks in an effective and efficient way. Command and control ensures that the individual knows EXACTLY what their job entails and it ensures that the individual is fully trained and over trained in the job they specify in. Command and control in the Army is highly important for military exercises such as drill practise/competitions. The individual in charge of the military exercise e.g. Sergeant Major, must have good command and control over the soldiers in order for the......

Skills in Command & Control

...Skills in Command and Control Credibility The definition of credibility is the quality of being believable or being worthy of trust. This is a skill that is needed as many team members rely on their leader being trustworthy and believable, as they’ll be taking orders and commands from them, so they need that reassurance that they know what they’re saying and being able to trust them. This is something that is really important that a leader has, as I believe that many organisations would fail in fulfilling their message if there was no trust involved. Being credible is more of a quality than a skill, but it’s a crucial factor that needs to be taken into account. In public service organisations, the public look up to them and are trusted to carry out the work that will safeguard and protect them, if a leader of a team cannot be credible to their team, then trust in that organisation is either lost or lowered. Motivation Motivation is the desire or willingness to do something. This is usually in the form of enthusiasm and giving others supportive words that energise them and get them to reach their goal/s. Team leaders need the skill to motivate others, as they’ll be times when their team lack motivation and don’t really want to do something that they’re being asked of, so therefore a team leader needs excellent motivation skills to get them going again. In public services, motivation is needed so that teams can actively and successfully carry out tasks, with the......

In 1968 at a fire chief meeting in Phoenix Arizona and incident command system was established to organize our responses to a disaster large, small, natural or man-made ("Incident command system," ). This system was designed to help lessen the communication errors by establishing common terminology which identifies...who's in charge, what is needed and who is expected to follow up. Along with establishing a common terminology the ICS has established a common hierarchy, which will decrease management deficiencies because the composition of this team is usually diverse and covers many organizations. These members are usually volunteers and come in a number of field expertise. The roles in ICS usually include a single incident commander who commands the response effort and is the final decision-making. The command staff which reports to the incident commander includes a Safety officer - monitors safety conditions and develop measures for assuring the safety of all personnel and persons affected. Public information officer is the information source for all involved. This officer also serves as a liaison to the media.

Command

...Mission command is the modern style of military command that, in the words of Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, requires a commander to “blend the art of command and the science of control.” In mission command, the commander is the focal point of the operations process. To carry out the operations process successfully, a commander must do the following: understand the operational environment and problem at hand, envision the end state and visualize the nature and design of the operation, direct the joint warfighting functions, constantly assess the process, and lead soldiers by providing direction and motivation. Although mission command is a newly coined term, its principles have been apparent since 1775 when the colonial army was formed. Following the initiation of the American Revolutionary War, American military troops trapped British forces inside the city of Boston. Lacking the forces necessary to attack the rebels, Gen. Thomas Gage, the British commander, opted to secure the surrounding terrain on the Charleston Peninsula. He hoped to prevent the enemy from capturing the terrain that would enable them to bombard Boston with artillery. Aware of the enemy’s plan, Col. William Prescott led approximately 1,200 soldiers atop Breed’s Hill (originally thought to be Bunker’s Hill) on June 16, 1775, and constructed an earthen redoubt. In response, the British Army deployed 2,300 soldiers to attack the colonials. After three bloody assaults, the British captured Breed’s Hill.......

Complete Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance System for C-130 Aircraft

...Walter B. Peppersack ASCI 611 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Professor: Bill Teeple 5 December 2014 Abstract This research is in the Oculus system; a roll-on/roll-off Command and Control unit that attaches to a standard military 463L pallet design that is accommodated by the C-130 Hercules. There are two modules that are mounted to a pallet system that roll on and off just like any other cargo load. The design requirements for this payload are that it will be able to be loaded on any model of C-130 without permanent modifications to any of the airframes. The system safety aspect of Oculus and the way it is designed is well defined without specific hazards outside the parameters of normal operations with any other payload, other than the lift arm mechanism for the sensor pod attached to the aft door, and the operational parameters while it is in use. It is because of the design requirements for not modifying the airframe that has created a safety issue with the way the sensor pod is set in operation. Oculus Sensor Platform System The C-130 Hercules transport aircraft has been around a long time. It has been a proven airframe, has been the work horse for the U.S. military services through the decades, has seen many conflicts, and has provided air and ground support for numerous missions worldwide. With its longevity it has seen numerous problems, has had many up-grades and modifications that each have their own safety issues. The ground support systems......

Commands (Windows)

...Useful Windows Commands You Should Know…. There are some things you can only do from the command line, even on Windows. Some of these tools don’t have graphical equivalents, while others are just plain faster to use than their graphical interfaces. We can’t possibly cover all the useful commands you can use in the Command Prompt or PowerShell here. We’ll be focusing on commands that should be useful even if you’re not a command-line person. ipconfig – Quickly Find Your IP Address You can find your IP address from the Control Panel, but this takes quite a few clicks. The ipconfig command is a fast way of determining your computer’s IP address and other information, such as the address of its default gateway — useful if you want to know the IP address of your router’s web interface. To use the command, just type ipconfig into a Command Prompt window. You’ll see a list of all the network connections your computer is using. Look under Wireless LAN adapter if you’re connected to Wi-Fi or Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection if you’re connected to a wired network. ipconfig /flushdns – Flush Your DNS Resolver Cache If you change your DNS server, the effects won’t necessarily take place immediately. Windows uses a cache that remembers DNS responses it’s received, saving time when you access the same addresses again in the future. To ensure Windows is getting addresses from the new DNS servers instead of using old, cached entries, run the ipconfig /flushdns command after......

Mission Command

...Mission Command Assessment Essay In order to really delve into the topic of Mission Command, we must first accurately define it. So what is Mission Command? Per doctrine, Mission Command is “the exercise of authority and direction by the commander using mission orders to enable disciplined initiative within the commander’s intent to empower agile and adaptive leaders in the conduct of unified land operations.” Now that’s a mouthful. But, what does it really mean? In simplified terms, mission command is the way a leader develops and leads his subordinates into accomplishing the mission while leaving room for leaders to take ownership and initiative in completing the mission. Mission Command is comprised of six different principles, all of which are bound together by mutual trust. The first two principles: build cohesive teams through mutual trust and create shared understanding, are the foundation to Mission Command. A leader can establish a command climate that fosters mission command by ensuring there is mutual trust and shared understanding within the organization. These two concepts are gained through common experiences, communication, and collaboration. Through shared experiences, a team will have endured hardships together. When faced directly with challenges, it is the person to your right and left you look towards for encouragement and assistance. When the team makes it through the hardship together, the sense of unity fosters and develops trust amongst the......
