RAMSTEIN, Germany - In the last few years the Deployable Air Command and Control Center (DACCC) has developed the capability to provide training in the Air Command and Control System (ACCS) domain through both Non Real Time and Real courses. These achievements are the result of a synergic use of DACCC personnel expertise and competence, enlarged in conversion training and with personnel augmentation, and the ACCS Testing and Training Facility equipment.
The DACCC provided an additional Air Command and Control capability for the Alliance, generating and enabling an organic Air Command and Control Node capable to deliver the full spectrum of training from planning to execution and during the control of flight activity, through a holistic involvement of DACCC capabilities, equipment and personnel.
The Ramstein Dust deployment exercise combines implementation and training of the overall DACCC competencies and workforce.
For that reason the Ramstein Dust deployment exercise series was redesigned to better adhere to Deterrence and Defence of the Euro Atlantic Area concept in order to preserve NATO capability to respond in times of crisis and to bolster Air Command and Control redundancy.
The training scenario, executed for the first time using two ACCS entities, equipped with two different baselines, was also adjusted in order to train the Air Command and Control Node throughout the exercise with a wide range of Air Operations in close coordination with the Italian Air Force, taking into consideration the expected future involvement of other NATO members and partners and other entities.
"The Ramstein Dust deployment exercise combines implementation and training of the overall DACCC competencies and workforce," said COMDACCC Maj Gen. GABELLINI. "This approach enables application of recent constructs and requirements plus ad allows us to find innovative ways to improve training efforts aimed at improving additional operational skills," added Maj Gen. GABELLINI.
