Air Force TACPs demonstrate Arctic Capabilities during Exercise Polar Quake

U.S. Air Force tactical air control party (TACP) specialists assigned to Detachment 1, 3rd Air Support Operations Squadron, jump from a Texas Air National Guard C-130J Super Hercules during airborne operations for Exercise Polar Quake at Malemute Drop Zone, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Jan. 12, 2022. The TACP Weapon System is uniquely organized, trained, and equipped to synchronize the majority of ground nodes into the Combined Forces Air Component Commander’s (CFACC) Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) and expand the web of communication to the tactical edge of the battlefield. Exercise Polar Quake highlighted the TACP Weapon System’s capability to provide the CFACC the ability to expand the command and control network and pass real or near real-time intelligence, battlespace situational awareness, and enhance the Find, Fix, Track, Target, Engage, Assess (F2T2EA) process while operating in austere Arctic environmental conditions.

A U.S. Air Force tactical air control party (TACP) specialist assigned to Detachment 1, 3rd Air Support Operations Squadron, recovers his parachute during airborne operations for Exercise Polar Quake at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Jan. 12, 2022. The TACP Weapon System is uniquely organized, trained, and equipped to synchronize the majority of ground nodes into the Combined Forces Air Component Commander’s (CFACC) Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) and expand the web of communication to the tactical edge of the battlefield. Exercise Polar Quake highlighted the TACP Weapon System’s capability to provide the CFACC the ability to expand the command and control network and pass real or near real-time intelligence, battlespace situational awareness, and enhance the Find, Fix, Track, Target, Engage, Assess (F2T2EA) process while operating in austere Arctic environmental conditions.
