Abstract : Evolution of the Tactical Air Control System in Southeast Asia, its expansion and refinement, and its relationship to Command and Control in general were addressed in CHECO report, "Control of Air Strikes in SEA, 1961-1966", published on 1 March 1967. Concerned especially with out-country control of airstrikes, this second CHECO report updates Command and Control activities and actions which directly pertain to control and direction of airstrikes, such as Airborne Battlefield Command and Control Center orbits, Forward Air Controller capabilities, armed reconnaissance and--insofar as they impinge upon strike control--Rules of Engagement. Specific peripheral elements and in-country procedures pertaining to airstrike control in Southeast Asia have been profiled in other CHECO reports.
