The E-3 Sentry is a US military airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft based on the B707 that provides all-weather surveillance, command, control and communications. It is used by countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Saudi Arabia and NATO air defense forces. It is distinguished by the disc shaped rotodome above the fuselage. Production ended in 1992 after 68 had been built.
The radar and computer subsystems on the E-3 can gather and present broad and detailed battlefield information. Data is collected as events occur. This includes position and tracking information on enemy aircraft and ships, and location and status of friendly aircraft and naval vessels. The information can be sent to major command and control centers in rear areas or aboard ships. In times of crisis, data can be forwarded to the National Command Authority in the United States via RC-135 or Naval aircraft carrier task forces.
