Accomplishing the Mission

The Joint Air Defense Operations Center (JADOC) facilitates a critical defense mission, providing direct command and control capabilities for air security in the nation’s capital. Consolidating functions from multiple facilities that had been erected following the 9/11 attacks, the building provides a permanent home for the joint US Air Force and US Army staff who monitor and safeguard the skies.
