Poland launched a new civil-military Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre (ARCC) on 26 January 2018. Its main purpose is to co-ordinate responses to aviation incidents in the Warsaw Flight Information Region (FIR).
A total of 20 staff – 10 assigned by air navigation service provider PANSA and 10 from the Polish Ministry of National Defence – receive, analyse, and verify safety risk data for flights in Polish airspace.
The ARCC in Warsaw is aided by two subordinate facilities, run by the Polish military in the operations centres for the Air Component Command and Maritime Component Command.
Personnel in the Warsaw centre direct the work of air search-and-rescue (SAR) teams.
