The centre is located in Glons, a village close to the cities of Tongeren and Liège, Belgium. It employs nearly 200 people. It works closely with the NATO ACCS Management Agency NACMA for the ACCS Programme and with NATO Maintenance and Support Agency NAMSA for the maintenance of various Air C2 buffer systems.
