Combat Operations Division (COD)

The Combat Operations Division monitors and executes the Combined Force Air Component Commander's (CFACC) Air Tasking Order (ATO), the electronic document that outlines daily air operations with respect to aircraft sorties, weapons loads and operational taskings. As one of five divisions within the Combined Air and Space Operations Center, the COD enables the CAOC to meet its mission as the primary command and control facility for Coalition air campaigns in Afghanistan (International Security Assistance Force, Operation Enduring Freedom), Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom), and the Horn of Africa. The COD serves as the CAOC's dynamic around-the-clock nerve center. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Riedel)
