Joint Warfare Analysis Center
Joint Warfare Analysis Center (JWAC) is a subordinate command of United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) that contributes to United States national security by recommending strategic technical solutions. JWAC has evolved from a small program office into a joint command of more than 400 personnel. As it grew, it became part of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1994 and then was spun off as an independent joint command subordinate to United States Joint Forces Command (formerly U.S. Atlantic Command) in 1998.
JWAC coordinates directly with the staffs of all unified commands, Department of Defense (DoD) elements, combatant commands (including: CENTCOM, USEUCOM, USPACOM, USSOUTHCOM, USSOCOM, USSTRATCOM), military services, and other government departments and agencies, in order to respond to crises. JWAC has twice been awarded the Joint Meritorious Unit Award and twice awarded the Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office's award for Outstanding Achievement in Modeling and Simulation Analysis.
