MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. --

Air University Press announces the release of Radar Contact by Randall DeGering. The emergence of radar and tactical fighter control is the genesis of today’s air battle managers.

 

It is from the mixed Army Signal Corps and Air Corps environments that the first fighter control squadrons emerged. What air battle managers do today has its foundations in procedures and terminology developed by the struggles of their predecessors. This context is valuable in fostering an appreciation for the fighter controller heritage.
