Air Force 2nd Lt. TJ Bertsch, an air liaison officer, left, and Senior Airman Luke Molidor, a joint terminal attack controller, both from the 14th Air Support Operations Squadron, Pope Army Airfield, N.C., direct close air support operations with the Air Support Operations Center using a satellite communications antenna. The ASOC is the primary command and control agency for integrating joint air power with Army operations. Fighter duty technicians coordinate air support for the JTACs and provide airspace de-confliction for tasked aircraft. Once JTACs receive a handoff of aircraft from the ASOC, it's their job to direct the fighters to the correct targets within close proximity to ground forces using radios and communications equipment.
