The Royal Australian Air Force’s No 1 Combat Communications Squadron (1CCS), is a Squadron within No 395 Expeditionary Combat Support Wing, and is responsible for the provision of expeditionary Communications and Information Systems and navigational aids to support Air Force and Australian Defence Force operations and exercises.
Capabilities that 1CCS can provide are many and varied. These include the provision of radio systems, information systems and air traffic control systems support. This support can be provided from established Air Force bases to very remote locations, anywhere in the world. 1CCS is often required to provide tactical and temporary communications support during disaster relief operations, both in Australia and overseas.
Essentially wherever in the world the Royal Australian Air Force has aircraft operating there will be 1CCS personnel or equipment on the ground to facilitate the command and control of those assets in the tactical or deployed environment.
1CCS’s personnel are primarily drawn from the Electrical Engineer (ELECTR), Communications Electronic Technician (CETECH) and Communications and Information Systems Controller (CISCON) specialisation and musterings. The Squadron also has a support cadre of administration, logistics and ground support personnel.
The Squadron Headquarters and the Richmond Flight are located at RAAF Base Richmond on the outskirts of Sydney in New South Wales. A Flight of personnel and equipment are also located at RAAF Bases Amberley and Townsville in Queensland and RAAF Base Williamtown which is also in New South Wales.
