This multi-Service tactics, techniques, and procedures (MTTP) publication for JATC establishes how to synchronize and integrate Service air traffic control (ATC) capabilities for planners in support of the joint force commander�s objectives. The publication provides background information on the JATC operational elements of each Service�s ATC force and provides a general understanding of how these forces fit into the flow of a developing theater. Service-unique information is highlighted for the planner to employ air traffic services in a joint environment.
Chapter I Planning
Chapter I describes the command and control relationships for ATC organizations and includes a table of Service capabilities for ATC organizational tasking. In addition, the chapter details planning considerations with tailored options for providing instrument navigational aids and instrument procedures within an area of operations, in support of the operational commander.
Chapter II Initial Deployment
Chapter II describes the employment of individual Service ATC capabilities in a joint environment. Of note, unlike flight operations where aircraft from several Services may share an airfield, ATC support is normally provided by a single Service. This chapter provides planning considerations for initial entry and a sample scenario showing potential ATC operations during the first 72 hours.
Chapter III Sustainment of Air Traffic Control Operations
Chapter III highlights long-term ATC operations through termination of ATC services, including end-state considerations for synchronization, integration, and interoperability of ATC forces within an area of operations.
Chapter IV Expeditionary Air Traffic Control Considerations
Chapter IV describes expeditionary ATC operations in support of the joint force commander�s objectives. This chapter highlights creative and adaptive ATC procedures, within regulatory guidelines, to increase aircraft availability and survivability for the operational commander. These ATC procedures are not normally available in the National Airspace System; hence, they are not practiced during peacetime operations. The chapter provides examples of emergency landing surface operations and counter- rocket, artillery, and mortar integration. In addition, there are procedures for communications out/emission control airfield operations; reduced same runway separation; randomized aircraft arrivals/departures; and tactical aircraft arrival patterns during contingency operations.
