The radar array, for the AN/TPS-31A V7 Air Traffic Navigation, Integration, and Coordination System, tracks aircraft next to Runway 2 during a week-long training exercise at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., July 17, 2017. The ATNAVICS system is an expeditionary radar system allowing Marines assigned to air traffic control military occupational specialties to establish fully functioning airfields throughout diverse areas of operation. This was the first time Marines assigned to ATC roles to utilize the system aboard MCAS Cherry Point for training purposes, rather than just for certification on the system prior to deploying. The system was being utilized by Marines assigned to Air Traffic Control Crew 2, Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron, MCAS Cherry Point and Detachment Charlie, Marine Air Control Squadron 2, Marine Air Control Group 28, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.
