We established a joint operations center, transferred operational control of the JTF-GNO
mission set to Fort Meade, Maryland, and stood down JTF-GNO
's 24/7 watch center in Arlington, Virginia; these steps helped USSTRATCOM disestablish JFCC-NW and JTF-GNO
The NCOs of DISA and JTF-GNO
are assisting operations for every Combatant Command.
As the JTF-GNO
commander, Croom is responsible for directing the operation and defense of the Global Information Grid to assure timely and secure net-centric capabilities across strategic, operational and tactical boundaries in support of DoD's full spectrum of warfighting, intelligence, and business missions.
As a consequence, the JTF-GNO must provide guaranteed availability of systems and networks, assured delivery, and protection of information.
Operating in this unique and dynamic area of responsibility, the JTF-GNO has command relationships with all DOD commands, Services, and agencies.
The JTF-GNO vision, according to its strategic plan, is to "lead an adaptive force that assures the availability, delivery, and protection of the GIG.
The DoD now needs to establish the same type of momentum on the physical access side that the JTF-GNO
Communications Tasking Order provided on the logical access side.
While the JTF-GNO
timeline is very aggressive, our shared commitment to this effort is crucial.
