The IMOC is primarily responsible for the effective C2 of the air force’s tanker and air mobility operations across the globe.

Global Aerospace Logistics chief executive officer brigadier general Dr. Hassan Yousef Al Awadhi said the IMOC integration with Jeppesen’s capabilities will improve air mobility operations efficiency and also ensure that pilots are flying with the top military flight information available.

"The IMOC is primarily responsible for the effective C2 of the air force’s tanker and air mobility operations across the globe."

"Working together, we will help deliver critical data and operational command solutions to achieve successful missions for the UAE Air Force and Air Defence," Awadhi added.

Jeppesen Military Aviation director Gardiner Porter said: "We work to simplify the complex challenges confronting military aviation operations and reduce overall workload to enhance focus on the mission at hand."

Developed in collaboration with another Boeing subsidiary, Tapestry Solutions, the JOS is designed to seamlessly integrate within the IMOC to enable the management of tanker and air mobility operations by maximising effective use of both personnel and aircraft.

Belonging to Jeppesen’s complete integrated flight operations solution family, the MilPlanner delivers critical military flight planning and navigational data to help mission planners and aircrew plan multiple flight itineraries and coordinate them with Air Traffic Control (ATC) anywhere in the world.
