E-6 TACAMO (Take Charge and Move Out) airplanes support the U.S. Navy's ballistic missile submarine force. They provide survivable, reliable, and endurable airborne command, control and communications between the National Command Authority (NCA) and U.S. strategic and non-strategic forces. The E-6 TACAMO consists of the E-6A, a modified Boeing 707-320B; and the E-6B, a modified E-6A, equipped with an airborne launch control system capable of launching U.S. land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles. Boeing is the systems integrator for new products on the E-6 platform, working with the Navy and an industry team.
