NATINADS in practice

NATINADS – standing for the NATO Integrated Air Defence System – is the prime recipient of data gathered by units of the 26th Air Command, Control and Surveillance Brigade. General Vlastimil Picek visits several of them.

The personnel of the 26th Air Command, Control and Surveillance Brigade based at Stara Boleslav, with its radar equipment fully compatible to other NATO-member countries, are responsible for air control traffic and surveillance of air space over the Czech Republic. They have ultimately contributed to the full picture of air space over Europe within NATINADS since 2000.

During his recent visit, the Chief of the General Staff of ACR General Vlastimil Picek had talks with soldiers serving the country at several outposts of radiotechnical companies.

Even though some equipment and logistic background used by the brigade units remember their better days, soldiers do their best in gathering air control data to provide the Stara Boleslav headquarters with fresh on-line information.

General Picek praised good results of soldiers who work under rather difficult conditions especially in winter, and reminded soldiers his personal experience from these sites where he served as a young officer as a signal man.

Plans for modernisation of both equipment and living conditions for soldiers of the brigade are prepared, but implementation depends on funds available.
