Homeland Defense is a Global Endeavor

 
September 23, 2021

Defending North America is the number one mission of NORAD and USNORTHCOM.

We partner with the Canadian Joint Operations Command (CJOC), the Mexican Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA), the Mexican Secretariat of the Navy (SEMAR, and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force (RBDF).

A capable and persistent defense at home is a prerequisite to projecting power to a global integrated forward fight.

Our ability to deter in competition, de-escalate in crisis, and deny and defeat in conflict requires all-domain awareness, information dominance, decision superiority, and Global Integration.

This webinar is divided into the following sections:

  • STRATEGIC CONTEXT
  • NORAD & USNORTHCOM
  • NORAD HISTORY
  • NORAD MISSION
  • USNORTHCOM HISTORY
  • USNORTHCOM MISSION
  • THREATS TO NORTH AMERICA
  • INTEGRATED DETERRENCE
  • STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
  • INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS

NORAD and USNORTHCOM continues to anticipate, prepare, and evolve to meet the changing threat environment and face evolving capabilities from strategic competitors and potential adversaries.

Defending our homelands is a global endeavor, requiring global integration, information dominance, all-domain awareness, and decision superiority.

We have the watch.

General Glen D. VanHerck
Commander, NORAD and USNORTHCOM
