Phase 1 Replacement Mobile Regional Operations Centre
Phase 1 is intended to provide a new Mobile Regional Operations Centre (MROC) to replace the current Tactical Air Defence System (TADS).
MROC provides a deployable integrated air defence command and control system. The current TADS is reaching its life-of-type and needs to be replaced with a modern and flexible air battle management system that will be an important node in the networked battlespace.
Phase 1 will provide the replacement MROC.
