Airspace Surveillance and Control Command
The protection of Lithuanian air space has always been a priority for the Lithuanian Armed Forces. When forming the new Armed Forces structure, steps were taken to design appropriate air defence systems. In 1992, the predecessor to the ASCC, the Radar Data Supply Department, was part of the Aviation Service. On April 27, 1992, military personnel initiated the surveillance of the Lithuanian airspace in Vilnius Airport. That day marked the beginning of continuous Lithuanian air space monitoring and is considered to be the founding day of the Air Surveillance and Control Command.
Six radar posts have been established to monitor Lithuanian air space.
