The Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC) seeks to improve the space, land and maritime air power operations of the Alliance. In particular, it strives to develop and advance new ideas for the command, control and use of air assets from all service branches, while ensuring the implementation of those ideas. JAPCC also supports ACT, ACO and Sponsoring Nations by providing advice and expertise relating to air and space power. JAPCC has several branches to help it achieve its goals, including Combat Air, Combat Support, Combat Service Support, Policy and Concept Development, Future Capabilities and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance. They all have their own specific area of speciality and responsibility. However, some responsibilities do not vary a great deal across each branch. For example, all branches assist with developing and coordinating Joint Air Power-related transformation policy, doctrine, concepts and publication. All branches are also responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with external agencies and educational institutions that specialize in their field of expertise, in addition to giving advice regarding JAPCC support of NATO, Partnership for Peace (PfP), and European Union relationships. JAPCC sought COE accreditation in 2004, which it received in 2005. It counts on multinational support with Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States acting as Founding Nations. Along with the above-mentioned countries, Romania is also a Supporting Nation. It is located in Kalkar, Germany.

Its flag is light blue with its disc shaped emblem in the middle of the flag.
