The deviceEdit

Airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) radars are mounted on aircraft and are used to carry out surveillance, C2BM (command and control, battle management) functions similar to an Air Traffic Controller, detect near by aircraft and terrain for collision avoidance, detect and track targets and distinguish between friendly and hostile aircraft. Its high mobility makes it much less vulnerable to counter-attack.
