The mission of the Combined Air Operations Centre (CAOC) is to plan, direct, task and co-ordinate Air operations of all forces allocated, where and when required, with a team of diverse NATO professionals in accordance with COMAIR's guidance. This mission is accomplished twofold.
The first is conducted by the Standing Air Defense (SADC) to direct, supervise, and report on Air Policing operations of all allocated assets in peace, crisis and conflict in accordance with COM AIRCOM's directives and to support the permanent Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) mission. The CAOC will liaise with the appropriate land and maritime forces and coordinate between national and NATO agencies.
The second is to train members of the Deployable AOC (D-AOC) to support the AIRCOM JFAC organization as required to plan, coordinate and accomplish Air Operations. Within the Joint Force Air Component (JFAC) or JFAC element, the D-AOC will support COM AIRCOM in the operational planning and execution of the Tactical Ballistic Missile Defense (TBMD) mission. The D-AOC may be deployed to complete the formation of the JFAC.
Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC)
The Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC) began operations on 1 Jan 2005. This organization provides NATO with independent Air and Space Power expertise contributing to the improvement and transformation of Joint Air and Space Power. As an MOU-based organization within NATO, the JAPCC primarily supports Air Command - Ramstein (AIRCOMM), Maritime Command - Northwood (MARCOMM) , Land Command - Izmir, Allied Command for Transformation (ACT), the Joint Warfare Centre in Stavanger, Norway. The Executive Director of the JAPCC is a German Lieutenant General. His Chief of Staff is a US Colonel (US Senior National Representative assigned to the JAPCC).
HQ USAREUR has directed that US citizens cannot ship, transport, or hand-carry privately-owned firearms to Germany. This avoids the possibility of German criminal prosecution for unauthorized possession of weapons or punishment under the UCMJ.
