The AAMDC, an Army multifunctional organization, performs theater air and missile defense (TAMD) planning, integration, coordination and execution functions for the Army Forces Commander and the Joint Forces Land Component Commander (ARFOR/JFLCC). Air and missile defense functions are accomplished under one or a mix of operational elements - attack, active defense, passive defense and Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I).
