On 20 March 2018, the JCBRN Defence COE hosted a tiger-team on Live Agent Training (LAT). LTC Andreas Steinert, HQ SACT, chaired the meeting; LTC Jaroslav Borek attended on behalf of SHAPE. LTC Bernd Allert, MAJ Ilona Chylikova and MSG Marek Němec represented the JCBRN Defence COE, whilst COL Olivier Lion acted as the French Custodian of Allied Tactical Publication (ACT) 3.8.1 Volume III and IV.


The aim of the meeting was to determine a way ahead on how LAT will be reflected in the CBRN Defence Doctrine for Education, Training, Exercises and Evaluation and in the CBRN Defence Standards for Training, Exercises and Evaluation.

France provides the Custodians for both documents, whilst the Doctrine & Terminology Panel (DTP) and the Training and Exercises Panel (TEP), both subordinated to the NATO Joint CBRN Defence Capability Development Group, support their development. Both panels are chaired by members of the JCBRN Defence COE; the results of the meeting will have to be thoroughly discussed and implemented by DTP and TEP.
