Study: Command and Control Implications of Maritime Integrated Air and Missile Defense (Maritime IAMD)
The NDIA SLAAD Division Study entitled “Command and Control Implications of Maritime Integrated Air and Missile Defense (Maritime IAMD),” conducted by an industry-government team, was completed and delivered to and accepted by our Study Host, VADM Bernard J. McCullough III, USN, the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Integration of Capabilities and Resources (N8), on December 4, 2008.
This ambitious study made recommendations to the Navy regarding future investments in Command and Control, Battle Management, and Integrated Warfighter Picture capabilities required to build toward future required Maritime Integrated Air and Missile Defense and Joint Integrated Fire Control capabilities, including a discussion of approaches to the acquisition of such complex systems of systems.
The final report of the “Command and Control Implications of Maritime Integrated Air and Missile Defense (Maritime IAMD)” Study is not posted on this web site due to the overall sensitive nature of its content and recommendations.

The SLAAD Division provides an open and objective channel of communication for, and builds partnerships among, the U.S. Navy, the Department of Defense, and industry to address strike, land attack, and air defense issues of threat, operational concept, combat architecture, system technology, and manpower.
The division sponsor is Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Integration of Capabilities and Resources (N8). The division consists of the strike/land attack, air defense, and system assessment groups and the strike/land attack weapons, air platform, C4ISR, surface ship, ship self-defense, and theater air defense subcommittees.
The major focus of the division is the conduct and reporting of studies related to strike, land attack, and air defense. Studies are conducted at the request of a Department of Defense sponsor who focuses the effort on providing useful and timely results. Studies are undertaken by subcommittees according to their area of expertise. Study participation by both industry and government is voluntary. Study results are briefed to the sponsors, and reports are prepared and distributed to government and industry. Our study reports have helped the Navy articulate and resolve land attack and air defense issues. A technical report bibliography including an abstract of all published reports is available upon request.
The division holds quarterly meetings at an industry or government site. The two and a half-day meeting format includes one day of subcommittee meetings for study work, a half-day general division meeting, a half day of host briefings, and a half day of government briefings. These gatherings are excellent forums for technical and programmatic exchange among the government and industry participants. Members of the division visit the fleet commands each year, alternating between the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets. These visits enable us to gain first hand knowledge of operating fleet issues and to incorporate Navy concerns into our studies. The division conducts an annual symposium in the Washington, D.C., area on timely strike, land attack, and air defense subjects.
The division confers the Admiral John H. Sides Award annually “in recognition of meritorious service and noteworthy contribution to effective government-industry advancement in the fields of strike, land attack, and air defense warfare.” The award commemorates Admiral Sides' contributions to effective warfighting. Certificates of merit are presented annually to select members of the division who have provided significant contributions to study efforts during the year.
