U.S. Marine Teams Establish Tactical Air Direction Center at Camp Pendleton

1 min read

Teams from the U.S. Marine Corps have formed a tactical air direction center located at Camp Pendleton in California.

Established Oct. 28, the center was made to carry out majority of Marine tactical air command tasks; integrate air and ground systems; and serve as a location wherein maritime command centers and ships can access the Marine air command and control system, the Marine Corps said Thursday.

The TADC was inaugurated as part of Exercise Dawn Blitz 2017 which aims to prepare Expeditionary Strike Group 3 and 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade to engage in amphibious missions.

The USS Essex was used to integrate with the Global Command and Control System to improve connectivity in support of the center.

Aviation combat element commanders can use the TADC as a communications medium to conduct U.S. Navy and Marine joint operations with command and control assets.

During the Dawn Blitz exercise, the center was used as a communications medium between MTACS-38 Marines and the Essex’s ACE commander.
