RTAF revamps command centre

RTAF revamps command centre

The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) is expanding the Directorate of Air Operation Control to include aerospace and cyber security affairs, after the cabinet approved a royal decree yesterday.

The directorate will be renamed the Command of Air Operations Control to acknowledge its added responsibility, said deputy government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul.

The command will oversee the air force's aerospace and cyber security operations to allow the RTAF to respond to new security challenges, according to the decree.

The move aims to enhance the RTAF's non-combat operations, which include disaster mitigation, as well as search and rescue efforts, Ms Traisuree said. It will be supported by advanced systems, including modern fighter jets.
