The United States' National Reconnaissance Operations Center (NROC) is the focal point for the National Reconnaissance Office's current operations and for time-sensitive space-borne intelligence reporting for the United States Intelligence Community (USIC). The NROC was created in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks.[1]

NROC serves as a back-up to the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC), located at Vandenberg AFB, California.[2] New York's 222d Command and Control Squadron (222 CACS) provides personnel augmentation to NROC.[3
