The USSTRATCOM command and control headquarters is a U.S. Department of Defense joint forces command center. The facility consists of an administrative facility, Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF), a Global Operation Center (GOC) with High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) shielding, and two secure data centers.
Due to the importance of the USSTRATCOM mission—detecting and deterring strategic attacks against the U.S. and our allies—the global operation center is designed to maintain 24/7 operation for up to two weeks after mission support facilities have been destroyed. The structural design can withstand high wind speeds of 140 mph.
The secure mission-critical administrative office spaces accommodate the three different types of space required: SCIF, open storage, and non-classified offices. However, all administrative spaces are capable of meeting SCIF ICS 705-1, DCID 6/9 Physical Security Standards, and can convert to different office types as the organization’s needs change.
USSTRATCOM is being designed to LEED Gold certification standards.
