Ramstein To Command EPAA

The combined United States and NATO European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) missile defence initiative will be headquartered at Ramstein Air Base, in south-westernGermany.

The command centre for the EPAA, which will be located at the base, is expected to be activated in May. This new facility will be responsible for commanding the AN/TPY-2 radar installed in eastern Turkey, declared operational on 1st January (see ChainHomeHigh February, Issue 3).

The AN/TPY-2, which forms a key part of the first phase of the EPAA, is located Kürecik Air Base in south-easternTurkey.
