Abstract : There is no established joint Theater Missile Defense organization. The paper discusses a possible option, and where TMD should be directed from with the organization. That is resolved by the JFT commander based on circumstances, but the broad scope of TMD operations in the JTF, and whether it should be a warfare commander or a coordinator are discussed. The Navy's Combined Warfare Commander organization is not compatible with joint structures. A possible alternative more aligned with joint structures. A possible alternative more aligned with joint organizations is presented. With improved connectivity between forces afloat and those ashore, the Navy is also capable of a greater Command and Control role than ever before. Some of that new capability is presented.
