INTERCEPT PROCEDURES TEXTBOOK
Collision Course Correction Formula 1
During the initial part of an intercept, it is the weapons officer's responsibility to establish a
collision course based on GCI information. It is imperative to have speed and accuracy in mind
when making collision course corrections (CCCs). As the procedures are mastered, the spatial
relationship between the bogey and fighter will become apparent.
At the beginning of an intercept, the GCI controller will assign a heading to the bogey and
recommend the fighter to turn left or right for the bogey (this is called the commit phase). The
weapons officer will then receive the first bearing call. Since the weapons officer has a bogey
reciprocal and a bogey bearing, target aspect can be computed.
