As the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducts its primary mission of defending our shared continent, it stands ready to continue its tradition of tracking Santa’s journey around the globe on December 24.
“In addition to our day-to-day mission of defending North America, we are proud to carry on the tradition of tracking Santa as he travels along his yuletide flight path,” said General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, the commander of NORAD and U.S. Northern Command. “The same radars, satellites and interceptors employed on December 24 are used year-round to defend Canadian and American airspace from threats.”
