CJCSI 3610.01A: Aircraft Piracy (Hijacking) of Civil and Military Aircraft
Edited on Tue Mar-30-04 10:14 PM by beam_me_up
Someone help me make sense of this. The link to the full PDF document is at the bottom of this excerpt.

CJCSI 3610.01A
1 June 2001
Enclosure A
A-1
ENCLOSURE A
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE IN PIRACY (HIJACKING) OF CIVIL AIRCRAFT
AND MILITARY AIRCRAFT

1. Purpose. These instructions constitute actions to be taken by the
DDO, NMCC, unified commanders, and the Commander, NORAD, in the
event of a civil and military aircraft piracy (hijacking) incident.


2. Coordination with Civil Authorities
a. When an aircraft becomes the subject of an aircraft piracy offense
within the US special aircraft jurisdiction, the FAA and the Department
Defense will provide support in accordance with paragraph 3 of this
enclosure
. In addition, for military aircraft and military contract aircraft,
the Department of Defense will take action to prevent the hijacking
attempt and promptly notify the FAA and appropriate federal agencies.
The Department of Defense will provide the FAA with all pertinent
information involving onboard documents, equipment, weapons of mass
destruction (WMD), or material that the Department of Defense has
determined to be highly sensitive.
b. When the aircraft piracy (hijacking) situation is outside of the
special aircraft jurisdiction, the Department of Defense will take
appropriate action, consistent with Federal law and applicable
status of forces and other international agreements.
c. The DDO, NMCC, and FAA will maintain coordination during the
aircraft piracy situation.

3. Procedures
a. General. Military personnel will provide the following types of
support: intercept, surveillance, lift, equipment, and communications.
Military personnel may not participate in a search, seizure, arrest, or
other similar activity. This restriction would include the apprehension
of aircraft hijackers or use of military aircraft (fixed-wing or helicopter)
or other vehicles as platforms for gunfire or the use of other weapons
against suspected hijackers. In addition, assistance may not be
provided under this enclosure if it could adversely affect national
security or military preparedness.


CJCSI 3610.01A
1 June 2001
Enclosure A
A-2
b. Support. When notified that military assistance is needed in
conjunction with an aircraft piracy (hijacking) emergency, the DDO,
NMCC, will:

(1) Determine whether or not the assistance needed is reasonably
available from police or commercial sources. If not, the DDO, NMCC, will
notify the appropriate unified command or NORAD to determine if suitable
assets are available and will forward the request to the Secretary of
Defense for approval in accordance with DODD 3025.15, paragraph D.7
(reference d).

(2) If suitable assets from a unified command or NORAD are not
reasonably available, the DDO, NMCC, will coordinate with the appropriate
Military Service operations center to provide military assistance.

c. Military Escort Aircraft

(1) When notified that military escort aircraft are needed in
conjunction with an aircraft piracy (hijacking) emergency, the DDO,
NMCC, will notify the appropriate unified command or USELEMNORAD to
determine if suitable aircraft are available and forward the request to the
Secretary of Defense for approval in accordance with DODD 3025.15,
paragraph D.7 (reference d)
.

(2) Pursuant to reference j, the escort service will be requested by
the FAA hijack coordinator by direct contact with the NMCC. Normally,
NORAD escort aircraft will take the required action. However, for the
purpose of these procedures, the term escort aircraft applies to any
military aircraft assigned to the escort mission. When the military can
provide escort aircraft, the NMCC will advise the FAA hijack coordinator of
the identification and location of the squadron tasked to provide escort
aircraft. NMCC will then authorize direct coordination between FAA and
the designated military unit. When a NORAD resource is tasked, FAA will
coordinate through the appropriate Air Defense Sector/Regional Air
Operations Center.

(3) If the hijacked aircraft destination is Cuba, flight-following
aircraft will maintain surveillance in case an emergency occurs over
international waters and will notify USSOUTHCOM or NORAD
immediately of any action taken. USSOUTHCOM or the Commander,
USELEMNORAD, may terminate any escort activities south of 24N
whenever appropriate to avoid Cuban airspace. For all foreign countries,
including Cuba, flight-following aircraft should break away before
entering the US-recognized territorial airspace of another country (or the
land border if the other country is contiguous to the United States) and

await overflight clearance as necessary. See reference h for further
information on US-recognized territorial airspace.

2. Makes my head ache.
So, in June 2001, this memo was circulated telling NORAD that in the event of a hijacking SOP now routes everything through DoD--Rumsfeld?

3. Why is it every time I glance at this thread title...
I see the word Ashcroft instead of Aircraft? Subconscious I suppose. :shrug:
