AMD Coverage Coordination Process

The Air and Missile Defence Coverage Coordination Process is employed by the Air Defence Commander’s planning staff in order to coordinate air defence design information provided by assigned and supporting force elements contributing to the overall Defensive Counter Air (DCA) effort. The aim of this process is to achieve a coordinated, theatre-wide defence design with a level of confidence that meets the Joint Commander’s objectives for the protection of critical assets. During complex operations/campaigns conducted in a large JOA/theater of operations, the ADC may recommend and the JFC may approve the division of the operational area into separate air defence and surveillance regions, each with a Sector Air Defence Commander (SADC) who could be delegated responsibilities and decision-making authority for DCA operations within the region.
