NORAD/USSPACECOM Warfighting Support System (N/UWSS) (U)
(U) The NORAD/USSPACECOM Warfighting Support System (N/UWSS) will implement a continuous, integrated insertion of technology that encompasses all the Battle Management/Command and Control (BM/C2) deficiencies noted in the 1997 National Missile Defense Mission Area Development Plan. The goal of N/UWSS is to provide a highly responsive and cost-effective "sensor-to-decision-maker-to-shooter" capability that enables warfighters to accomplish their missions.

(U) The objectives for the N/UWSS are to develop a system with: 1) the flexibility to respond rapidly to evolving and new mission needs and technology insertion opportunities, 2) a high degree of interoperability between the function internal to the N/UWSS and other warfighting CINCs' systems, and 3) that is cost effective to operate, maintain, and upgrade.
(U) N/UWSS will provide an integrated solution that migrates current CINCNORAD and USCINCSPACE capabilities like Cheyenne Mountain Upgrade (CMU) and the CINC Mobile Alternate Headquarters and adds new capabilities including National Missile Defense BM/C3, Theater Battle Management Core Systems (TBMCS), NORAD Battle Manager, Global Command and Control System, Multi-level security, etc. This effort will span several AFMC product centers. A Mission Needs Statement has been signed by CINCNORAD.
