What you need to know about the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command’s new $2 billion air-traffic control system

On the eve of the Air Mobility and Space Council (AMSC) conference in Colorado Springs, the Air National Guard is getting ready to install its first-ever air traffic control system.

And this time, the Army and Marine Corps are also on board.

The Air Mobility System for Integrated Air and Missile Defense (AMISAT) is slated to take delivery next year.

“The Air Mobility system is a big deal for the military,” says Air Force Maj. Gen. Daniel B. McCord, commander of Air Force Space Command.

“It will help us make decisions, manage risk, and make sure we are ready for the day that we can do everything from home to war.”
