No, you can't. It's assumed that you as a qualified team leader (:)) will be able to handle this.
There's one tip though to predict if airdrops are going to happen. Check out the number of enemy jocks
(hit F3 and use the arrows in the popup) and sum up their maximum titan tonnage when you can spot them. If it's far from your team's tonnage, it's most likely that an airdrop will occur. So keep you team close together. It also pays off to advance carefully and sneaky.

Also note that you can set the chance for airdrops to happen in binit.dat. At least I heard so ....

That's it. Of course, if you want to use any of the settings therein, you have to uncomment the lines accordingly.
Note also, that this file must be located in the 'data' subfolder of your ToS directory.

To clarify:

In order to reduce or increase the percent for airdrops (as an example) You would need to remove the # in front of the line where air drop percent is. So while it looks like this:

# Chance for the AI to make airdrops :
#airdrop 25

You would alter it to look like this:

# Chance for the AI to make airdrops :
airdrop 25

All the numbers currently in the Binit.dat are default, so if you like them the way they are there's no need to uncomment any lines. You do need to uncomment the lines to change them though.
