  Air/Aerospace Defense Command (ADC)
The Air Defense Command (ADC) is organized primarily to discharge Air Force responsibilities for the air defense of the United States.
ADC units fly the Lockheed RC-121 Warning Stars which form the aerial seaward extensions of ground radar lines off both ocean coasts of the United States.
ADC is the major component force of both the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) and the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD).

The ADC 1 also instructed the crew to report approaching 4,000 ft. The crew acknowledged the clearance but later advised that they were unable to report approaching 4,000 ft due to frequency congestion.
The ADC 1 had assigned 4,000 ft so that a procedural separation standard of 1,000 ft could be maintained with other aircraft until he could see the B1900 and apply visual separation.
The ADC 1 was unable to apply the required separation standard, either 1,000 ft vertically, or a minimum horizontal distance determined using the appropriate `Lateral Separation' standard from the Manual of Air Traffic Services (MATS), between the B1900 and the traffic inbound to the southern circuit.

The ADC handed out documents to assist in identifying the different types of aircraft; telephone companies did their part as well by transmitting free of charge messages intended for ADC stations.
ADC observers, therefore, worked as an early warning system before a radar station network could be built.
But their reports were useful to locate lost aircraft and the information they provided increased the efficiency of rescue missions.

 ADC Aircraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ADC Aircraft (Aircraft Disposals Company) was a British firm established in March 1920 to take advantage of the large number of World War I-surplus military aircraft on the market.
ADC bought ex-military aircraft and converted them to various civil roles before on-selling them.

The ADC instructed the pilot of the Turbo Commander to join left downwind for runway 29C at 1,500 ft, as the second aircraft in the arrival sequence.
Pilots of aircraft operating in a GAAP CTR are not required to use the aircraft's secondary surveillance radar transponder.
The pilot of the C152 reported downwind and was instructed by the ADC to sight and follow the Turbo Commander on a `late wide downwind’.

It will not contain aircraft type, origin or destination (this limited information on some GA aircraft is due to the way flight plans are filed).
This is due to the aircraft passing directly over the radar antenna and the temporary loss of signal.
These “ghost” aircraft are due to radar reflections from the high-rise buildings around the airport, and possibly from terrain and meteorological conditions farther away from airport.

The ADC spin on filter and ADC cleanable filter are widely used on the Robinson R22 and R44 Helicopters.
The ADC Oil Filter System is an advanced alternative to conventional filters, with the unique ability to warn a pilot of abnormal engine wear early - before an in-flight engine failure occurs.

 F-106A
In spite of the initial achievements of the first F-106s, ADC was not fully convinced that it was getting a combat ready aircraft.
They were conducted by another ADC unit, the 539th FIS at McGuire AFB, N. J., with the assistance of that command's interceptor and missile school at Tyndall AFB, Fla., where the ADC pilots learned to fire the new interceptor's armament.
Hence, by 1960 ADC possessed so many divergent F-106 configurations that maintenance support was almost impossible-a problem partially due to the Cook Craigie production policy re-endorsed in August 1956.

 Uncle Ted's ADC Collection
I have always been curious about aircraft not mentioned much by history, usually because they had little effect and that they were inferior to what the enemy used.
These aircraft were not built solely for their deterrence value or for pretty displays at airshows.
from 1936 to 1945 (and points beyond), the aircraft discussed here were involved in air warfare campaigns, which, as a technology or a military science, was developing at as furious a rate as the aircraft themselves.

Mitchell Schwartz, aka "Uncle Ted", has produced some extra ADCs at his "Hangar of Homebrew", which expand the possible conflicts that can be recreated by expanding the nationalities and aircraft types available beyond those officially published.
An alternative is to use the Meteor I ADC from Uncle Ted's and add 0.5 to all power numbers for a rough conversion (the Mk III had 2,000 hp engines to the Mk I's 1,700hp).
The inclusion of additional rules for existing aircraft types is not to be construed as a criticism of the original rules or ADCs.

Soviet aircraft in the 1930s through the WW2 period followed a design paradigm that valued simplicity of construction and robustness (for simplicity of maintenance) as well as performance.
Once WW2 began in Europe, and several aircraft deals died by non-delivery, Sweden decided it needed a domestic aircraft industry to supply its air arm to maintain its stance of armed neutrality in the face of mid-twentieth century combat.
These aircraft were being developed as the Reich was falling, meaning that prototypes were being constructed (or had been flown) but there were still a few bugs to be worked out.

 Searching the Skies: The Legacy of the United States Cold War Defense Radar Program
Activated on March 27, 1946, the new ADC was directed to "organize and administer the integrated air defense system of the Continental United States." 10 With virtually no radars in operation and its fighter aircraft relegated to National Guard units, ADCs initial emphasis was on planning.
On April 16, 1952, after receiving reports from Alaska and Maine of unidentified incoming aircraft, ADC Headquarters issued an air defense readiness alert that caused hundreds of pilots to scramble to their planes and gun crews to man their antiaircraft guns.
Thus the path was cleared for the ADC to request funding for a third phase of mobile radars that would prevent and end-run around the northern-oriented detection belt.

 GAO: B-291423, Alpha Data Corporation, December 20, 2002
ADC objects to the agency's ranking of its proposal as fourth among the five proposals receiving performance confidence ratings of Very Good/Significant Confidence based on its lack of experience with SOF or military aircraft.
ADC also objects to the Air Force's evaluation of offerors' cost/price proposals, complaining that the agency failed to establish a baseline with which to compare offerors' sample task prices for reasonableness, and that it failed to assess the risk associated with the lowest-cost proposals.
[3] The protester objects to the distinction between prime and subcontractor past performance, not to the distinction between SOF/military aircraft experience and other types of experience, and the emphasis in the evaluation on experience with SOF and military aircraft was consistent with the solicitation.

ADC had three prime missions: radar surveillance (a radar squadron operated from Montauk Air Force Site [AFS]); bomber interception by fighter interceptors and ground-to-air missile operations.
There were exceptions where ADC operated the base and a Fighter Wing (FW) with two squadrons; the 78th Fighter Wing at Hamilton AFB, California and the 52nd at Suffolk.
ADC downsized rapidly in the late 1960s, when the threat and mission changed from manned bomber to missile attack and requirements for the Vietnam War.

Having a range of around sixty-five miles, these radars were placed in areas where it was thought enemy aircraft could fly low to avoid detection by the longer-range radars of the permanent and mobile radar networks.
While the ADC struggled to field FD radars, improvements to the existing network of AN/FPS-20 radars made it less susceptible to jamming.
Consequently, the centers were designed for peace time use to detect, track, and identify intruding aircraft, and if needed, to deploy and direct interceptor aircraft to challenge an intruder.

When Frederick B Rentschler and a group of Wright engineers left that company and formed their own group in 1925 to produce the nine-cylinder R-1340 Wasp, they had neither official organization nor name when the prototype was submitted to USN for evaluation.

However,trouble started at about 1pm yesterday when 50 Cent, who arrived the airporttwo hours behind schedule, was prevented from taking his seat in the firstclass section of the aircraft by Eedris who was already on the seat meant for50 Cent.
