Supporting Global Integration: The Joint Staff Approach To Air And Missile Defense by CSIS published on 2018-11-28T16:51:29Z As the United States shifts its focus to the near-peer threat, it must prepare to defend and counter sophisticated air and missile threats. The Joint Staff and the Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Organization (JIAMDO) works to coordinate these functions. Within the Department of Defense, JIAMDO is chartered to develop and integrate sensors, weapons, command and control systems, and the concepts to employ them in the air and missile defense mission area. It operates in support of both the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. Strategic Command. The CSIS Missile Defense Project cordially invites you to two panel discussions featuring current and past JIAMDO leaders, to discuss the organization's history, mission, and future opportunities.
