INTERCEPT PROCEDURES TEXTBOOK
UNIT 1: PURPOSE, CONTROL, AND COMMUNICATIONS
IP-1: FIGHTER PURPOSE
The primary purpose of the fighter aircraft is to obtain and sustain air superiority over
contested airspace. To successfully accomplish this, the fighter crew must execute an intercept
in such a manner as to:
(1)  Attain a position in space between the attacking aircraft and the defended force
(positional advantage).
(2)  Control the intercept geometry to achieve an optimal weapons Launch Acceptability
Region (LAR) or Weapons Employment Zone (WEZ). This is done to maximize the
probability of kill (Pk), while simultaneously preventing the enemy from achieving weapons
release.
(3)  Arrive at the merge with an advantage, either in position or in energy, and use basic
fighter maneuvers to deter or destroy the enemy.

Methods of Intercepting
Normally, there are two primary methods that a fighter may use to close on a bogey:
(1)
Establish a cutoff vector in order to obtain position advantage.
(2)
Establish a collision course.
