This makes it challenging for a single nation to acquire all the necessary capabilities it needs to provide for its own defence and contribute to the collective defence of the Alliance. The Conference of National Armament Directors (CNAD) is the senior committee responsible for promoting the cooperation between countries in the armament field, tasked with identifying collaborative opportunities for research, development and production of military equipment and weapon systems.
