The Inter-Agency Defense Command, or IADC, is an independent agency of the United States government within whose structure Wonder Woman frequently operates. (Her dual identity, however, which she keeps a closely guarded secret, is unknown even to her governmental superiors.) It is affiliated with the United States Department of Defense, in which such of its agents and members as its incumbent Director, Steve Trevor, Jr., a United States Air Force colonel in A-2, the Air Force Intelligence Service, and its Associate Deputy Director of Field Operations, Diana Prince, a United States Navy commander in N-2, the Navy Intelligence Service, are career personnel.
The IADC coordinates the efforts of other US intelligence agencies, but it is a co-equal partner to all of them and not actually part of any of them. It thus serves as a kind of "clearing-house" for their activities, preventing overlapping and/or collision of their respective jurisdictions.
The IADC had previously been under the Directorship of Joseph Atkinson, a career GS, or "Government Service," official, whose Deputy Director Steve Trevor, Jr. was and who subsequently retired in favor of Trevor, Jr.
IADC equipment includes the Information Retrieval Associative Computer, or "IRAC," a massive highly-advanced main-frame computer commonly nicknamed "Ira" by IADC personnel, and "Rover," a vaguely dog-shaped robot on caster-type wheels often employed to transport certain small items between any two locations inside IADC headquarters.
