Navy Tactical Air Control System
Definition/Scope: (FM 3-52) The Navy utilizes the composite warfare commander (CWC) concept as the doctrinal cornerstone of its operational and tactical information systems. The Navy employs the Navy Tactical Air Control System (NTACS) during amphibious operations. The CWC and NTACS encompass overall Navy command and control at sea. NTACS is the organizational structure within which the commander, amphibious task force (CATF) executes air operations in the AOA. The NTACS is found only during an amphibious operation. It is a relatively small organization compared to the MACCS.
