Located in CMAFB, the MWC is operated by USSPACECOM to fulfill ballistic missile TW/AA responsibilities of USCINCSPACE to external users to whom there are commitments. The MWC manages the ballistic missile sensors and reporting system in support of timely, accurate, and unambiguous warning of missile attack worldwide. MWC personnel, in coordination with other centers, validate and confirm report events. The Launch Correlation Unit (LCU) of the MWC ensures all domestic and cooperative launches are coordinated and reported so that they are not construed as hostile in accordance with the “Agreement on Measures to Reduce the Risk of Outbreak of Nuclear War” between the US and USSR.
