Description

Squadron Prints Lithograph No. 1220 - Air Warfare Centre, RAF Waddington. The Air Warfare Centre’s (AWC) motto is “ARMA IUDICARE CONSILIUM DARE” (To test the weaponry and give advice). Established in 1993 and spread across numerous locations in the United Kingdom and United States, with headquarters in the Thomson Building at RAF Waddington, the primary role of the AWC is the provision of accurate, timely and contextual integrated mission support to the joint war-fighter. The AWC delivers air environmental advice, together with mission dependent data, to enhance understanding, decision-making, operational tempo and decisive advantage, while contributing to the development and testing of future Air Power capabilities and to the conceptual and doctrinal thinking that underpin their employment. The AWC currently has five functional areas of responsibility: Development Division (including 56 (R) Squadron and the Air Platform Protection Test & Evaluation Squadron) shapes, prepares and assures the delivery of Air test and evaluation for current and new capabilities in the air environment, the development and testing of new airborne systems and aircraft protection measures. Operations Division (including 92 (R) Squadron, IO/Cyber, 591 Signals Unit, the Air Warfare Group and Air Warfare School) supports standing and contingent operations with accurate, timely and contextual advice to assist commanders’ decision making and to allow tactical units to maintain operational tempo and flexibility in order to deliver decisive effect. Operations Support Division (including the Defence Electronic Warfare Centre (DEWC), Typhoon Mission Support Centre, Operational Intelligence Wing and RAF Intelligence Policy and Plans) provides assured, timely and predictive air and aviation focussed operational intelligence, Joint Electronic Warfare Operational Support (EWOS) and leads in the development, training, support and force generation (including the RAuxAF Intelligence Squadrons), thus forming the core of Defence EW and RAF Intelligence capabilities. Operational Analysis Division provides support to all other AWC Divisions, conducting studies and providing scientific and technical advice. Flying Division (including 41(R) Squadron, 17 (R) Squadron, 206 (R) Squadron, Empire Test Pilots’ School, Rotary Wing Test & Evaluation Squadron, Unmanned Aerial System Test & Evaluation Squadron, Joint Air Delivery Test & Evaluation Unit and Rotary & Fixed Wing Mission Systems & Weapons Integration teams) is responsible for the delivery of integrated test and evaluation of existing and emerging capabilities in support of current operations and future requirements. It conducts ground evaluations and flight trials from MoD Boscombe Down and locations across the globe to provide safety recommendations, clearance advice for acceptance and release to service, assessments of suitability for operating roles and evidence to maximise operating potential. The Thomson Building is also home to the DEWC which contributes to the operational capability of the UK Armed Forces by providing EWOS directly to the Permanent Joint Headquarters and to a wide range of operational units and platforms. The DEWC is an integral component within the AWC and is jointly staffed by Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and civilian personnel who maintain the UK’s Defence Electronic Warfare Database.
