Capability Package 5A0156 (CP156) User Group meeting

19 May 2014

The 18th ‘ACO Deployable non-CIS HQ Assets User Group meeting’ was held on the 2nd and 3rd of April at the Southern Operational Centre (SOC), Taranto.

The participants came from various headquarters who are current or potential users of CP156 assets, including Joint Force Command Brunssum (JFCB), Joint Force Command Naples, Multinational Joint Headquarters Ulm, Headquarters Eurocorps and Headquarters ARRC.

NSPA briefed them on the current status of the project. Additionally, LTC Digno Palma, from JFCB, briefed on issues related to ‘Exercise Steadfast Jazz 2013’, with particular emphasis on the use of CP156 assets and the SOC support team, deployed to Latvia over the period September-December 2013. Despite this exercise being declared a resounding success, there are always lessons learned and these were actively debated and will be actioned accordingly by NSPA and other relevant agencies.
