Technical Executive Committee
The JANNAF Technical Executive Committee (TEC) is responsible for the effective operation of the technical activities, including the Technical Subcommittees and Technical Subcommittee Panels. The TEC consists of eight regular members, two of whom are appointed by each of the affiliate JANNAF agencies. Each TEC member is a full-time officer or employee of the Federal Government.

Technical Subcommittees
Technical Subcommittees are convened to conduct the technical business of JANNAF and cover specific areas that best fit within the most current posture of the industry. Each has a charter and are managed by a Technical Steering Group (TSG). The TEC designates official members from their respective agencies, and there is one TEC member designated as a liaison representative for each subcommittee. Subcommittee members are full-time officers or employees of the Federal Government. Other government, industry, and university representatives are invited to participate in TSG meetings held for the purpose of technology exchange.

Technical Subcommittee Panels
Technical Subcommittees establish panels and workshop groups, as necessary, to achieve the goals of their respective charters.
