Control and Reporting Centre RAF Ash - Control and Reporting Centre RAF Ash

Following the completion of these works Ash became a Control and Reporting Centre. As a Control and Reporting Centre RAF Ash was fully equipped and able to take control of an air battle in the area in the event of any of its sister stations being rendered inoperable. In 1993 RAF Ash became the Ground Environment Operational Evaluation Unit testing all new equipment. Ash was the RAF’s smallest station until it was downgraded to a satellite of RAF Manston. This signalled the winding down of activities on the site. The last full year of operation was 1995.
