Deployable Infrastructure Storage, Deployment and Maintenance

The NSPA's Southern Operational Centre (SOC), co-located in Taranto (Italy) and Capellen (Luxembourg), is the centre of expertise for deployable camps.

Being responsible for the full life cycle management of deployment infrastructures, the SOC has consolidated its ability to rapidly deploy assets contributing to the readiness of the nations of the Alliance during exercises and operations.

Our team manages everything from the acceptance, to the follow on support of the deployable facilities, systems and vehicles, as well as the technical services and support during deployment.

"In-House" SOC is in charge of:

  • Accepting Capability Packages (CP) of deployable HQ assets;
  • Storing, maintaining, preparing and deploying non-CIS baseline assets with SHAPE guidance;
  • Training users (NATO Command Structure) and other potential users on CP deployable HQ's.

"When Deployed", SOC can:

  • Transport, Set-up, Operate, Tear-Down, Repack and Redeploy CP HQ assets;
  • Provide Contractual support to operational units and other customers.

Our SOC team is specialized in:

  • Maintaining the deployable HQ assets and Personnel in fully operational condition assuring the required NTM status (5 and 30 days depending on the asset);

  • Providing support to the Users ensuring technical field assistance;
