Korea — Air defence artillery command operates mission capability improvement program

Over four months from Novem­ber 2011 to Feb­ru­ary 2012, the Kore­an Air Force Air Defence Artillery Com­mand fin­ished imple­ment­ing a four-step oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ty improve­ment pro­gram to take the stage of “no prob­lems with oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ty” to that of “role per­for­mance as an instruc­tor for com­bat­ants.”

The oper­a­tions war­rant offi­cers are con­sid­ered to be the core per­son­nel in per­form­ing air defense mis­sion because they are charged with super­vis­ing the artillery­men and main­tain­ing the equip­ment. The com­mand con­duct­ed this edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram because they judged that improv­ing the war­rant offi­cers’ over­all capa­bil­i­ty can be direct­ly relat­ed to rein­forc­ing air defence capability. 

The four-step edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram was per­formed in sequence of diag­nos­ing, instruct­ing, eval­u­at­ing, and giv­ing feedback. 

The Air Defense Com­mand made a trip to its sub­or­di­nate units one after anoth­er to make a spot check on them, and then, based on the out­come of the inspec­tion, pro­vide them with instruc­tion, along with eval­u­a­tion, on numer­ous fields such as how to train team mem­bers, tac­ti­cal effec­tive­ness eval­u­a­tion, and check­ing equipment. 

Fur­ther­more, the com­mand had a time to feed the results of the instruc­tion back to each unit through “a work­shop for mis­sion capa­bil­i­ty improve­ment” in the pres­ence of the eval­u­a­tors from the com­mand and its brigades and all of the war­rant offi­cers of the Command. 

“Tak­ing this pro­gram as a good oppor­tu­ni­ty to exam­ine and analyse our mis­sion capa­bil­i­ty, we will do our best to help fill a gap in air defense oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ties,” said War­rant Offi­cer Choi Dae-yong, who par­tic­i­pat­ed in the program.
