The Boeing Airborne Warning & Control System, or AWACS, operates as an integrated command and control battle management, surveillance, and target detection platform. Operating successfully for decades, the AWACS provides a real-time, accurate picture of the battlespace with its 360-degee rotating radar.
Fleet modernization and technological upgrades have allowed the operational fleet to continue serving the skies with enhanced capabilities.
AWACS provides all-weather and all-terrain surveillance of the battle space, situational awareness of ground force activity, command and control of a desired area, and early warning of enemy actions during joint, allied, and coalition operations.
The Boeing AWACS is positioned to provide mission-critical surveillance support as well as assisting military and civilian authorities in coordinating humanitarian relief.
