These strikes assist the IDF ground forces in dealing with threats and coordinating firepower in a short time, with the shortest time measured being 6 minutes from the moment of the call to the strike.
As part of preparations for the war, and recognizing that one of the tasks of the Israeli Air Force is to provide aerial support to ground forces, the IDF revealed that air force commanders collaborated with infantry unit commanders. Together, they conducted joint exercises in various scenarios.
The Israeli Air Force headquarters presents real time situational updates of ground forces and establishes direct communication with ground units. This allows for quick, coordinated responses to emerging targets, effectively closing loops during operations.
