SAMOC® operations centre
Surface to Air Missile Operations Centre
The Surface to Air Missile Operations Centre (SAMOC) is a comprehensive air defence management system specifically designed for joint and combined operations within a multi-service and multi-national environment.
The system, which was initially developed for the German Air Force, optimizes and increases
- the effectiveness of a mix of sensor, effectors and air defence systems
- state-of-the-art planning-,
- multi data link handling-,
- advanced data processing- and
- ergonomic display technologies
As a comprehensive Command and Control Centre for Ground Based Air Defence operations, SAMOC provides an integrated Battle Management and Command and Control capability which can be employed for both local and out-of-area operation.
SAMOC – Operational Benefits SAMOC is a key system which integrates and fuses Air Defence Command & Control systems, sensors and weapon systems in a networked environment into a single "System of Systems". During all phases of operations, preparation and operations, a high degree of technical, system and operational interoperability is established by using Tactical Data Links, automatic Message Processing (like ADatP-3) and utilizing military procedures. This networking concept greatly increases shared situational awareness, monitoring capabilities, speed of command, weapon system effectiveness and survivability of own and coalition forces against aerial threat. SAMOC supports the whole operational cycle from preparation including training, force generation and mission planning to mission execution using automated tools to support the operators in executing their tasks. Changes resulting from experience gained in recent operations are incorporated in the next planning, mission and training cycle.
SAMOC – Functional areas SAMOC provides integrated Command and Control capabilities that automate and integrate the performance of the following functional areas:
- Force Operations
- Engagement Operations
- Common Services / Communications
- Training & Simulation
