The build-up of the E-3A Component began in January 1980. In October 1980 the Component was granted the status of an international military headquarters by decision of the NATO Defence Planning Committee (DPC). Flying operations began in February 1982 after delivery of the first E-3A-aircraft. The Component was officially activated on 28 June 1982 and achieved full operational capability at the end of 1988.
