Author Affiliations +
The rapid targeting system (RTS) has been in operation at the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) in Vicenza, Italy since June 1996. RTS provides sensor-to-shooter support to the CAOC Battle Staff Director. Since June 1996, RTS has been involved in over 200 operational training sorties flown for Operation Decisive Endeavour and the newly created Operation Deliberate Guard. Training sorties have been run with U.S. Air Force F- 15Es, U.S. Navy F/A-18Ds and A-6s, and U.S. Marine Corps F/A- 18D aircraft. RTS provides these aircraft with near-real-time imagery of mobile and stationary targets from the U-2, JSTARS, Predator UAV, GNAT, Tactical Reconnaissance, and National Reconnaissance sensors. In response to Air South requests, RTS was recently used in conjunction with the 48th Fighter Wing, 492nd Fighter Squadron during a two week deployment from Lakenheath Air Base, UK to Aviano Air Base, Italy.
