An area and the airspace above it within which procedures are established to minimize mutual interference between air defense and other operations.

Air operations conducted to destroy, neutralize, or delay the enemy's military potential before it can be brought to bear effectively against friendly forces.

That degree of dominance in the air battle of one force over another that permits the conduct of operations by the former and its related land, sea, and air forces at a given time and place without prohibitive interference by the opposing force.

That degree of air superiority wherein the opposing Air Force is incapable of effective interference.

The commander designated to assume overall responsibility for the operation of the airspace control system in the airspace control area.

An order implementing the airspace control plan that provides the details of the approved requests for airspace control measures. It is published either as part of the air tasking order or as a separate document.

Within a unified command, subordinate unified command, or joint task force, the commander will assign overall responsibility for air defense to a single commander. Normally this will be the component commander with the preponderance of air defense capability and the C4 capability to plan and execute integrated air defense operations. Representation from the other components involved will be provided, as appropriate, to the AADCís headquarters.

(DOD, NATO) A geographical area wherein a commander is directly capable of influencing operations by maneuver or fire support systems normally under the commander's command or control.

That area of concern to the commander, including the area of influence, areas adjacent thereto, and extending into enemy territory to the objectives of current or planned operations. This area also includes areas occupied by enemy forces that could jeopardize the accomplishment of the mission. The AOI for ADA commanders includes all areas from which the enemy could launch aircraft or missiles against the protected force. Also called AOI. See also area of influence.

An operational area defined by the joint force commander for land and naval forces. Areas of operation do not typically encompass the entire operational area of the joint force commander, but should be large enough for component commanders to accomplish their missions and protect their forces. Also called AO.

ADA units are typically assigned an AO also. This area is actually three-dimensional as it encompasses the airspace above. The AO may be called a missile, joint, or SHORAD engagement zone (MEZ, JEZ, SHORADEZ). It may not exactly correspond to the supported unit AO.

The geographical area associated with a combatant command within which a combatant commander has authority to plan and conduct operations. 2. In naval usage, a predefined area of enemy terrain for which supporting ships are responsible for covering by fire on known targets or targets of opportunity and by observation. Also called AOR.

A commander or individual assigned responsibility for coordinating specific functions or activities involving forces of two or more military departments or two or more forces of the same service. The commander or individual has the authority to require consultation between the agencies involved, but does not have the authority to compel agreement. In the event that essential agreement cannot be obtained, the matter shall be referred to the appointing authority. Coordinating authority is a consultation relationship, not an authority through which command may be exercised. Coordinating authority is more applicable to planning and similar activities than to operations. (JP 1-02)

corps support command

The JFACC derives authority from the JFC who has the authority to exercise operational control, assign missions, direct coordination among subordinate commanders, redirect and organize forces to ensure unity of effort in the accomplishment of the overall mission. The JFC will normally designate a JFACC.

A general term applied to a combatant commander, subunified commander, or joint task force commander authorized to exercise combatant command (command authority) or operational control over a joint force.

If designated by the JFC, the senior land commander in a joint force who exercises command and control of all assigned land forces.

A group formed by the JFC to accomplish broad targeting oversight functions that may include but are not limited to coordinating target information, providing targeting guidance and priorities, and preparing and/or refining joint target lists. The board is normally comprised of representatives from the joint staff, all components, and if required, component subordinate units.

The integration of joint force capabilities to destroy enemy theater missiles in flight or prior to launch or to otherwise disrupt the enemyís theater missile operations through an appropriate mix of mutually supportive passive missile defense, active missile defense, attack operations, and supporting C4I measures. Enemy theater missiles are those that are aimed at targets outside the continental United States.

theater high altitude area defense

All activities focused on the identification, integration, and employment of forces supported by theater and national capabilities to detect, identify, classify, locate, track, discriminate, minimize the effects of, and destroy air and theater missile threats (to include large caliber rockets). The preferred method to destroy air and theater missile threat is to destroy or disrupt operations prior to launch. The next most desired option is to intercept and destroy the threat in flight. TAMD must also apply measures to reduce vulnerability and minimize damage in the event attack operations and active defense measures are ineffective.

A missile, which may be a ballistic missile, a cruise missile, or an air-to-surface missile (not including short-range, non-nuclear, direct fire missiles such as Maverick or wire-guided missiles), whose target is within a given theater of operation.
