During the 20 years of its existence, the ACIC was critical in supporting U.S. efforts in Vietnam, deploying the Point Positioning Database targeting system, which gave U.S. aviators better targeting accuracy. It also provided charts and graphics to assist the planning and execution of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, which included determining lunar orbits and finding landing sites.
