Abstract
The 8 Air Communications and Control Squadron (8ACCS) has the mandate to support deployed air operations anywhere in the world using a full range of portable communication systems and air traffic contron (ATC) equipment. This study determines the probability that 9ACCS will have to deploy two full instrument flight rules (IFR) airfields, or two identical components of the airfield, for concurrent operations, based on historical activation rates for operations' plans and their attendant equipment requirements. The results indicate that there is no requirement for two full airfields, but that some essential airfield components such as the precision approach radar (PAR) are very likely to be required while they are already in use. For that reason, more than one unit of these critical components should be available to 8ACCS.
