Overview Edit

The U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) is one of 10 U.S. unified commands under the Department of Defense (DoD). The Command, including components, employs more than 2,700 people, representing all four services, including DoD civilians and contractors, who oversee the command's operationally focused global strategic mission.

Missions Edit

The missions of U.S. Strategic Command are to deter attacks on U.S. vital interests, to ensure U.S. freedom of action in space and cyberspace, to deliver integrated kinetic and non-kinetic effects to include nuclear and information operations in support of U.S. Joint Force Commander operations, to synchronize global missile defense plans and operations, to synchronize regional combating of weapons of mass destruction plans, to provide integrated surveillance and reconnaissance allocation recommendations to the SECDEF, and to advocate for capabilities as assigned.

USSTRATCOM also acts as focal point for incidents of satellite communications interference and electronic attack (EA) affecting DoD satellite communications space systems to include spacecraft, ground control sites, and associated user terminals.

Cybersecurity activities Edit

In 2009, U.S. Strategic Command developed an Operations Order titled Operation Gladiator Phoenix to provide DOD with a strategic framework to operate, secure, and defend the global information grid.
