Challenge

NORAD and USNORTHCOM J8 Science and Technology (S&T) seeks to improve homeland defense, defense support of civil authorities, theater security cooperation, and other NORAD and USNORTHCOM mission capabilities. 

Solution

ARA supports NORAD and USNORTHCOM J8 Science and Technology (S&T) with oversight of science, innovation and future capability initiatives in order to improve homeland defense, defense support of civil authorities, theater security cooperation, and other NORAD and USNORTHCOM mission capabilities. 

We provide visibility to the Physical Security Enterprise & Analysis Group (PSEAG) projects as they relate to the Combatant Command Mission Gaps.  We also provide analysis to determine which RDT&E efforts may enable emerging technologies to mitigate or close capability gaps.  Additionally, ARA provides operational management support to various PSEAG funded-information sharing projects.

Impact

NORAD and NORTHCOM’s mission of protecting North America’s air, land, and sea approaches and geographic area require constant innovation to maintain the advantage of ever-changing adversaries. Our team provides the subject-matter expertise and support necessary to leverage new and emerging capabilities and technologies.
