The Air and Missile Defense Planning and Control System (AMDPCS) provides an automated command and control system to integrate Air and Missile Defense planning and operations. There are two configurations of AMDPCS, which are deployed with Air Defense Artillery (ADA) units, including ADA Batteries, Battalions, Brigades and U.S. Army Air and Missile Defense Commands (AAMDC).
A third configuration, the Air Defense and Airspace Management (ADAM), is deployed with Army maneuver units, including Brigade Combat Teams, Functional Support Brigades, and Division and Corps Headquarters. ADAM provides collaboration and staff planning capabilities through Army Mission Command and operational links for airspace coordination with Joint, interagency, multinational and coalition forces.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
AMDPCS in ADA Brigades and AAMDC provides expanded staff planning and coordination capabilities for integrating defense of the air battlespace. ADAM provides maneuver units with collaboration and staff planning capabilities, and operational links for airspace coordination.
