  • What does the NOC do?

    • Mission Coordination

    • Mission Funding

    • Mission Reporting

    • Mission Reimbursement


National operations center13

National Operations Center

  • Air Force SAR Missions

    • AFRCC or JRCC assigns missions directly to CAP Wing


National operations center

  • Air Force Training Missions

    • CAP Wing enters the mission request

    • Wing, State Director, and Liaison Region Approvals


National operations center

  • Monthly “A” and “B” Missions

    • Approved by the State Director each month


National operations center

  • Misc. Corporate Flights

    • Cadet training, proficiency flights, meetings, etc.

    • Mission is automatically set up for each fiscal year


National operations center14

National Operations Center

  • All other missions

    • Start with a request

      • The customer sends a request for CAP support

    • Wing enters mission information into WMIRS


National operations center15

National Operations Center

  • The coordination begins.

    • Can this be an Air Force Assigned Mission (AFAM)?

      • Provides FECA/FTCA protections for CAP Members and CAP

    • Is there “Federal Interest?”


National operations center

  • Federal Interest

    • Is it a federal agency?

      • Federal Agencies must be an AFAM


National operations center

  • Federal Interest

    • Is it Drug Interdiction (CD)?

National Operations Center

  • Not a Federal Agency and no Federal Interest?

    • Corporate Mission?

      • NOC reviews and Wing Commander approves.

        • AIR Transportation?

        • Law Enforcement?


National operations center20

National Operations Center

  • Federal Interest, but who pays?

    • Must be determined before turning a prop

    • CAP appropriated money for SAR, Drug Interdiction, and Air Force support.


National operations center21

National Operations Center

  • The Economy Act

    • Requires other Federal Agencies to pay for CAP support

    • Payment usually by Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR)

    • Must be loaded to the Cooperative Agreement before the mission can start


National operations center22

National Operations Center

  • For disaster missions, the process is very quick on the Air Force side.

    • Contracting office is alerted to a High Priority document


National operations center23

National Operations Center

  • AFAM Approval

    • Disaster or Emergency

      • ATO Change request sent to Air Force with request & immediate sortie data (next 24 hours at least)

    • Things can escalate quickly


National operations center24

National Operations Center

  • If the mission is not urgent:

    • Approval is through the ATO cycle.

    • What is the ATO cycle?

    • DSCA missions generally require SITREP’s

      • A template will be provided


National operations center28

National Operations Center

  • Finances

    • Remember there is no endless pot of money!

    • Every mission has a limit

    • MIPR’s have a hard limit.
