April 30 in a ceremony at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren, Va.
Commanded by Rear Adm. Alan B. "Brad" Hicks, NAMDC is the lead
organization for Navy, joint and combined Integrated Air and
Missile Defense (IAMD).
NAMDC serves as the single warfare center of excellence to
synchronize and integrate Navy efforts across the full spectrum of
air and missile defense to include air defense, cruise missile
defense and ballistic missile defense.
"We're on a quest to field a naval
capability that is equally adept servicing national missile defense
of the United States, regional missile defense for our allies and
friends abroad and theater defense for our forward fighting
forces," said Adm. Robert F. Willard, commander, U.S. Pacific

NAMDC will support the chief of naval operations and fleet
component commanders, end-to-end by integrating technologies,
warfighting concepts and command and control. NAMDC will provide
operational support to the fleet and will report Commander, U.S.
