    (VF)Cet article examine la façon dont les praticiens fabriquent la coordination au quotidien lorsqu’ils évoluent dans des environnements volatils. Il pose alors la question suivante:comment les acteurs résolvent-ils concrètement les problèmes de coordination auxquels ils sont confrontés, lorsqu’ils doivent décider et agir rapidement, dans un environnement marqué par une forte variabilité des situations? L’analyse s’appuie sur une étude de cas extrême, concernant la coordination des équipages et des forces spéciales durant les missions dites «d’appui feu rapproché» accomplies par les forces françaises en Afghanistan.(VA)Seeking to enrich the contingency perspective by questioning the social and cognitive dimensions of coordination, this study analyzes the way people actually coordinate when they continuously act within extremely volatile environments. It develops an extreme case study concerning Close Air Support missions in Afghanistan, and specifically examines the coordination between aircrews and special operation forces on the ground.
