Air Space Control Command - (1 members)

Airspace Control Command [Afr: Lugruimbeheerkommandement] is responsible for supplying early warning and air defence weaponry back-up to the Air Force, while providing air traffic control services to users of South African airspace. This is done by deploying two main systems, i.e. mobile and static. Mobile systems can be deployed at short notice almost anywhere in the country. Radar units give cover to tactical elements of the Air Force while air defence missile and gun weaponry are used to protect strategic national points. A highly sophisticated static system ensures that the industrial heartland of the country is safeguarded against enemy air activity by employing fighter aircraft in an interception role. An integrated Air Traffic Control organisation, jointly operated by the SAAF and the Directorate of Civil Aviation has been developed which greatly improves flight safety in South African airspace and of direct benefit to all users of the airspace. Flight control and airspace operators are trained by the Airspace Control School at AFB Waterkloof.
