Control and Reporting Center (CRC) Target Mission
Provide the Joint Forces Air Component Commander (JFACC) with the capability to conduct theater air operations including joint, U.S., and combined operations.
The Control and Reporting Center (CRC) is the Air Force’s only 24/7 persistent deployable ground battle management command and control (BMC2) platform employed at the tactical level of war. The CRC is the most forward-based link in the Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) family of systems. It is interoperable with other JBMC2 systems and provides real-time shared situational awareness at the tactical level and common shared situational awareness at the operational level.
The CRC conducts detailed air space management, air surveillance, aircraft identification, data link management, and theater air defense. The CRC provides the decision superiority that enables more agile, more lethal, and survivable joint operations. It may be employed by itself or in combination with other ground-based and airborne tactical C2 assets and supports a broad range of military operations.
