  • This slide and the next one show the Commands’ vision and missions. As you read these slides, you will notice our tremendous focus on partnerships. We couldn’t succeed without our partners.
  • These are our mission statements. NORAD is a binational command with the U.S. and Canada. NORAD stands for “North American Aerospace Defense Command.” It was established in 1958. The NORAD Agreement is a formal military partnership, based upon a binding international agreement. This agreement is reviewed every four years. United States Northern Command, or “USNORTHCOM,” was established in 2002 as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11th.(Additional notes: At that time, the United States did not have a single command responsible for defense of the United States. It was split between a number of commanders. So, President Bush, Secretary Rumsfield, and our Congress established USNORTHCOM.)The USNORTHCOM mission statement was recently reworded to add the word “partners.” The intent of this rewording was to emphasize that in everything we do, we work with a host of key partners to ensure unity of effort and effectiveness of response.USNORTHCOM is U.S. only, but our Area of Responsibility (as you will see on slide five) covers all of North America, including The Bahamas and the Caribbean. NORAD’s and USNORTHCOM’s missions complement each other to encompass the entire spectrum of defense, from detection to recovery. By working together, we are able to fully achieve mission success.
  • Our missions are depicted here in three categories…Homeland Defense, Security Cooperation, and Civil Support. Our mission success is dependent on the strength of our partnerships, as noted in the diagram.NORAD’s missions (Aerospace Warning and Control and Maritime Warning) fall in the Homeland Defense section, which includes defense of the homelands of the United States and Canada, while USNORTHCOM’s operations span everything. In fulfilling the Homeland Defense missions of both NORAD and USNORTHCOM, it makes sense to combine efforts, share information, and work together as one team. USNORTHCOM spends a significant portion of its time on Civil Support, but Homeland Defense remains DOD’s number 1 priority. USNORTHCOM’s Security Cooperation Program strives to improve relationships with Partner Nations in order to share information, promote interoperability, and enhance capabilities that will contribute to a cooperative continental response to defense, security, and disaster assistance.Transition – On the next slide, we will take a closer look at our Area of Responsibility/Area of Operation and Area of Interest.
  • The USNORTHCOM Area of Responsibility lies inside the blue line. In military terminology, in the U.S. Unified Command Plan (UCP), while this geographic designation is called the Area of Responsibility, this term does not imply that the U.S. controls Canada and the other countries. This Area of Responsibility can be described as our area of focus. In addition to the U.S., our Area of Responsibility includes 3 nations (Canada, Mexico and Bahamas) and 6 dependencies (PR, VI, BVI, Turks and Caicos), Bermuda and St Pierre Miquelon Islands).  Alaska is cross-hatched because USNORTHCOM has the Homeland Defense and Civil Support missions, but Pacific Command (PACOM) provides the forces to execute the mission. Hawaii is not part of our area (belongs to USPACOM) however, USNORTHCOM supports USPACOM with its mission of missile defense of Hawaii.NORAD does not have an Area of Responsibility, but rather an Area of Operation, which is North America.To the side of the map, you will notice that there is a listing of global issues, which shows examples of our Area of Interest. We don’t wait for threats to cross our borders. We work with other COCOMs (Combatant Commanders), intelligence agencies, and interagency partners to detect/defeat threats before they arrive at our borders. This list highlights examples of issues or types of events that we monitor and analyze to determine how they may affect our region of the world , so we can prepare accordingly.Transition – Next, we will look at how the Commands are structured to conduct our missions.
  • We do our mission with a host of partners…Strong relationships between organizations are especially critical here in the Homeland. NORAD and USNORTHCOM have a strong philosophy of “Cooperation and Collaboration.” This includes both military and non-military organizations.Our military partners consist of Canadian military and U.S. Active, Reserve, and National Guard. We also have Mexican military liaison officers assigned to USNORTHCOM. Our interagency representatives also are extremely important. We have relationships with representatives from both federal and non-government organizations such as the American Red Cross. Some reps work in our building while we have close contact with others. Since we know we will interact with these organizations here in the Homeland, it makes sense to collaborate on a regular basis to build an understanding of processes, resources, etc. It also helps to ensure unity of effort during the planning process. We routinely work with approximately 60 representatives from more than 50 agencies.Interagency coordination is a very important area of growth for both NORAD and USNORTHCOM for improving our situational awareness and decreasing our response time.Transition – Our partners also are a key focus of the Commander’s priorities, which you will see next.
