The Forward Air Controller (FAC) operating in the modern, complex, dangerous and high-intensive battlefield needs all the available assets to support his procedures and his communication and coordination with pilots. Support to the FAC is critical in improving the decision making process, minimising the risk of collateral damage and increasing force protection - not only for the FAC, pilots and allied troops, but also the civilian population.
