The complexity of today's airspace environment grows with each advance in technology. The clearly defined airspace control concepts, forces, and capabilities defined in this publication, Air Force Doctrine Annex 3-52 Airspace Control July 2019, help identify how best to use them for commanders at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels of military operations. The growth of military integrated air defense systems and the advent of cruise missiles and unmanned aircraft continue to complicate theater airspace control requirements. Increasing multinational operations with partner and allied nations will add complications to airspace control in order to attain interoperability for more complex chains of command, communications, sensor and weapons interfaces, and planning. In addition to military users, current and future operations can expect a multitude of other air-intense operations either near or within a joint operations area (JOA). In such operations, civilian users, nongovernmental organizations, and relief agencies may require the use of combat zone airspace to conduct operations. Complicating matters, indirect fire systems (e.g., artillery) are also airspace users and range higher, farther, and with greater volume of fire than ever before. These increased user demands require an integrated airspace control system to enable flight safety and prevent friendly fire incidents and unintended engagements against civil and neutral aircraft while enabling mission accomplishment and minimizing risk.
