Background

The DMOC gives this acount of its role:

As a result of lessons from recent operations, in particular Operation TELIC, the DMOC was established to provide the Tri-service hub for Media Operations training, education and operational capability.
At the centre of this new concept is the formation of a rapidly deployable Joint Media Operations Team (JMOT) and the creation of a lead training school responsible for the overall co-ordination, development and delivery of Media Operations training and education across the Defence Community.
With a staff of 47 drawn from the RN, ARMY, RAF and the Civil Service, the DMOC reports to the Director General Media Communications (DGMC) at the Ministry of Defence and is in all respects a Tri-service asset.
The DMOC is predominantly located at RAF Uxbridge, which is easily accessible by road, only a couple of miles from the M40, 4 miles from the M4 or Tube into Uxbridge Tube Station. The Logistic Support Wing is based at Beaconsfield.[1]
