In 2006, the Army began fielding an organic airspace command and control
(AC2) capability comprised of over 1,600 trained operators with dedicated AC2 cells at corps, division, and brigade levels, all linked through the tactical airspace integration system.
Of course, for Army aviators the first concern that comes to mind when operating with battalions flying the Raven SUAV systems is airspace command and control
. There has already been one reported midair collision between a Raven SUAV and an OH-58D and several reported near misses.
Tactical Airspace Integration System (TAIS)--The TAIS provides automated support for Army Airspace Command and Control
(A2C2) and Air Traffic Services (ATS) operations.
