Abstract:

Fleet Forces Command has been faced with the challenge of developing doctrine for the joint forces maritime component commander while serving as Northern Commands maritime component commander with primary responsibility for maritime homeland defense. Since the February 2002 Joint Staff requirement for the establishment of JFMCC doctrine, TACMEMO 3- 32-03 has been published. This document, as well as the draft JP 3-32 Command and Control for Joint Maritime Operations, have limited relevance to the NORTHCOM JFMCC. Instead, joint publications such as JP 3-26 Joint Doctrine for Homeland Security and JP 3-08 Interagency Coordination During Joint Operations have greater relevance. The NORTHCOM JFMCC is one of many entities in the mission of maritime homeland defense and security. It must leverage the unique capabilities of numerous agencies, especially those under the Department of Homeland Security, and in many ways will be required to play a supporting vice supported role.
