Air Traffic Control System Command Center
What is it?
The Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC for short) is essentially the brain of ATC logistical operations. The ATCSCC focuses on big picture stuff going on within the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). Although the term specifically refers to the U.S. system, most other countries have their own version of an ATCSCC type operation. The primary function of the ATCSCC is to manage air traffic demand with the system capacity, which can be a fairly difficult task, particularly when bad weather, runway closures, or other factors are present.
