Air Defense Artillery First To Fire, On Target!

Committed to the Fight, the Force and the Future

Welcome!


Air Defense Artillery (ADA)

Welcome to the Air Defense Artillery branch website. As an Air Defender, a Soldier in the U.S. Army or Retiree, you will be the embodiment of physical strength, emotional strength and strength of purpose. You will be prepared to serve our country whenever and wherever you are needed and will protect America's homeland and foreign assets from air and missile attacks.

Air Defense Artillery (ADA) is America's 911 Force

As an Air Defender, you will defend the American homeland against long-range ballistic missiles, terrorist aerial strikes, and shield deployed U.S. forces. Theater missile defense has become a prerequisite to U.S. military intervention, since allied countries routinely demand the deployment of U.S. Air Defense Artillery forces to protect their citizens and infrastructure from retaliatory missile strikes, before allowing other U.S. forces to use their country's airfields, airspace, or debarkation facilities. 

Mission

Lead an innovative and forward-thinking Fires Enterprise that: Provides the nation with the world’s best trained, organized and equipped Soldiers and units led by adaptive and resilient leaders. Develop and deploy Field Artillery (FA) and Air Defense Artillery (ADA) capabilities required for full spectrum operations to support current operational needs. Develop and integrate capabilities for future force warfighting concepts. Through engagement, provide world class joint and coalition exportable training

Vision

The world’s most versatile Fires Force, with agile and adaptive Soldiers and leaders; fielded with integrated and interoperable systems; capable of delivering accurate and responsive fires in any environment, from “mud to space,” at any time.
