Only several years ago, the Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) was still a new concept for NATO. It has taken significant effort from many parties, both inside and outside of NATO, to reach where we are today, with what many have called amazing speed.

Finance

Two main principles guide NSPA’s finances. First of all, NSPA works on a no profit, no loss basis, although using commercial business processes in many of its dealings. Secondly, costs incurred in the support of a weapon system are allocated to the customers using this principle. To achieve this, NSPA’s finances are organised in terms of specific projects or programmes.
