(RNZAF) Air Operations Communications System (AOCS) is a high frequency
radio network providing communications services for the operational
control of RAAF/RNZAF aircraft and HF equipped marine craft [army ground
stations are also commonly heard]. In addition, visiting military
aircraft may use the AOCS when contact with Australia/New Zealand
military authorities is required. The AOCS is not part of, and does not
provide, an air traffic control service, civil or military.
Centres (AOCCs) located at Sydney, Darwin, Townsville, Perth, Auckland
[NZ] and Woodbourn [NZ]. The combined AOCS provides:
frequencies. All AOCCs can transmit and receive on these three
B. Discrete frequencies are available (if required) at each AOCC and
allocated after initial contact on the GPN.
C. Telephone patch facilities between aircraft and ground appointments.
