Overview Edit

The World Wide Military Command and Control System (WWMCCS) (pronounced WIMEX) was established by the Department of Defense in 1962. It was an arrangement of personnel, equipment, communications, facilities, and procedures employed in planning, directing, coordinating, and controlling the operational activities of U.S. military forces. It included the existing command and control systems of the Unified and Specified Commands, WWMCCS-related management information systems for the Headquarters of the Military Departments, the command and control systems of the Headquarters of the Service Component Commands, and the Command and Control Support System of Department of Defense Agencies.

WWMCCS was intended to provide the President and the Secretary of Defense a means to receive warning and intelligence information, apply the resources of the military departments, assign military missions, provide direction to the Unified and Specified Commands, and support the Joint Chiefs of Staff in carrying out their responsibilities.

WWMCCS and its priority component, the National Military Command System, were essential elements of U.S. national security.
