Our contributions to NATO Education, Training, Exercises and Evaluation (ETEE) include the Support to Exercises by providing Subject Matter Expertise - especially on maritime operations in confined and shallow waters. This is not limited to NATO exercises only, but also includes regional and multinational maritime exercises (e.g. NORTHERN COASTS).
With the aim of enhancing the value and effectiveness of collective training and exercises, our support:
- starts with contributing to scenario development and Main Event List / Main Incident List scripting during the planning phase,
- continues with active involvement in the Exercise Control staff during the execution phase, and
- often concludes with identifying Lessons and contributing to the operational Analysis of the exercise.
The COE CSW supports primarily the NATO exercises of the TRIDENT series as well as NORTHERN COASTS, a multinational maritime exercise in the Baltic Sea.
