NORAD’s Old Command Center at Cheyenne Mountain.

The CMD Command Center (CCC) is the fusion center of all operations inside Cheyenne Mountain. In this center, the Command Director (CD) and his crew serve as NORAD, USNORTHCOM, and USSTRATCOM’s direct representative for monitoring, processing, and interpreting missile, space, or air events which could threaten North America or have operational impacts on our forces or capabilities.

The CCC fuses data from the other centers and passes it to the leadership of the United States and Canada, as well as regional command centers overseas.

When required, the CD must consult directly with CINCNORAD, Commander USNORTHCOM, and Commander USSTRATCOM for time-critical assessments of missile, air, and space events.
