NSPA hosts final coordination conference for major NATO exercise

14 July 2017

NSPA recently welcomed more than 120 participants from across NATO to the Final Coordination Conference for Exercise Trident Javelin 2017. Conference participants from NATO Allied Command Transformation, Allied Command Operations, host nations and sending nations met to discuss operational, intelligence, communications and logistics issues in preparation for the exercise which will be held in November.

Exercise Trident Javelin is a Command-Post / Computer Assisted Exercise to train the NATO Command Structure and prepare it for future challenges. The autumn exercise represents the final step in the certification process for the command and control elements of the NATO Response Force (NRF) for 2018, where JFC Brunssum will be the Standby Command for the year.

The exercise will be completed with a Command Post Exercise under the lead of the Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum, taking place in November 2017. The aim is to train and verify the NATO Command Structure to conduct a major joint operation in a multi-dimensional environment through the integration and support of Host Nations and the NATO Force Structure.

Mr. Dohmen, General Manager, welcomed the participants in his opening remarks and highlighted the increasing role of the agency in supporting NATO across both operations and exercises.
