Air Force Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has recently added a few more hats to his job repertoire.
On June 18, Raduege was chosen by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to assume command of the Joint Task Force-Global Network Operations. Raduege also takes over as the deputy commander for global network operations and defense at the United States Strategic Command.
The recently designated JTF-GNO started as the Joint Task Force-Computer Network Defense in December 1998. It was renamed Joint Task Force-Computer Network Operations in 2000 and recently, the command was redesignated to the Joint Task Force-Global Network Operations.
The command's mission is to lead and direct continuous system and network management, information assurance, computer network defense, and information dissemination management throughout the Global Information Grid, according to a DISA release.
