The ADA missions for the operational and institutional forces are as follows:

• Operational force: Provide fires to protect the force and selected geopolitical assets from aerial attack, missile attack and surveillance.

• Institutional force (the schoolhouse): The ADA School conducts Joint and Combined AMD training and AMEDD direct commissioning course training to provide the operational force with well-trained and disciplined Soldiers that can immediately contribute to their unit.


Provide the Army and combatant commanders a flexible, adaptive, and tailorable ADA force able to defeat the full range of threats across the spectrum of operations.
