INTERCEPT PROCEDURES TEXTBOOK
Area IV Too Much TA, Too Much LS
A fighter in area IV must turn towards the BFP, generating a cut into that is larger than
collision for the current TA. Lateral separation is more than sufficient and, more importantly,
TA is greater than desired.
The procedure to decrease TA and LS together is to take a cut toward BFP; specifically, a cut
into that is greater than collision for the current TA. The cut will be taken in the direction of
BFP (i.e. cut into).
Starting Parameters for all Conversions
The conversion intercept will begin with 45° or less TA with 30 nm separation. The first
task will be to determine the existing TA and lateral separation. Then, the fighter must take an
appropriate cut to achieve goal TA and goal LS at lead range. The intercept elements used to
analyze the problem are TA, LS and slant range. Standard attack-reattack procedures will be
used to complete the intercept.
