Joint Air Defense Operations Center (JADOC)

, US Navy

Washington, DC


The new JADOC facilitates a critical defense mission, providing direct command and control capabilities for air security in the nation’s capital. Consolidating functions from multiple temporary facilities that had been erected following the 9/11 attacks, the two-story building provides a permanent home and 21st-century technology for the joint US Air Force and US Army staff who monitor and safeguard the skies. The central operations control room is visible from and directly connected to all offices and support areas.
