Our NATO CBRN Reachback Element has successfully completed the exercise STEADFAST JUPITER 2023 – NATO’s largest Command Post Exercise in Modern Warfare. The exercise aimed to test NATO’s responsiveness, command and control, and defense posture in a highly challenging multi-threat environment, based on a simulated Article 5 Scenario.

Although the exercise primarily focused on the joint operational level, it was conducted at four levels, including the strategic and operational levels, as well as the tactical and second-tactical levels for both component- and corps-level operations. The JCBRN Defence COE supported this exercise as part of its mission to assist NATO in CBRN defence related efforts and provide advice in all CBRN defence related areas.
