National All-Domain Warfighting Center
Michigan's National All-Domain Warfighting Center (NADWC) seeks to maximize joint combat readiness by providing an adaptable, cost-effective, and integrated all-domain training environment supported by an expanding Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) architecture. This is all designed to enable the application of combined arms effects in a near peer, contested threat environment.

Overview

The NADWC includes the nearly 148,000 acres of training space at the Camp Grayling Maneuver Training Center and 17,000 square miles of special use military airspace at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center. The arena offers training for entities across the Department of Defense to prepare for the battlefield of the future. The training provides units with training capabilities across all five warfighting domains.

Land - Camp Grayling is a leader in providing efficient, unparalleled customer-focused service and the highest level of modern training. It offers a unique combination of resources that provide a wide variety of training scenarios to meet unit readiness requirements. Large artillery, mortar, tank ranges and maneuver courses are among the highlights available for visiting units.

Air -  The airspace, which extends over a portion of Lake Huron, is supported by three Michigan Air National Guard installations: the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, Battle Creek Air National Guard Base, and Selfridge Air National Guard Base. These air bases provide air-to-air maneuver capabilities, long range precision fires, premier command and control capabilities, and close air support for ground forces training at Grayling.

Maritime - Partially located on Lake Huron, the NADWC offers units the opportunity to train on, around, and above our nation's second-largest lake and one of the largest fresh water bodies of water in the world. When paired with Lake Margrethe on Camp Grayling, units can accomplish a range of maritime and littoral training objectives.

Cyber - With combined assets from across the state, the NADWC also has the ability to host live cyber attack and defense exercises. For kinetic units, the training arena can simulate electronic warfare and replicate a contested environment using joint threat emitters.

Space - Through partnerships with industry, visiting units have access to space-based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance for a near real-time picture of the battlefield. As the growing space and near space industry continues expansion in Michigan, there are plans for further space integration in the training environment.
