Maritime Support to Certification
4-13 May 2016
Exercise TRIDENT JAGUAR 2016 (TRJR16) was conducted from 04 to 13 May 2016 to train and certify NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Turkey (NRDC-T). COE CSW continued its contribution with a naval expert in the Exercise Control team during the execution phase of TRJR16 as was the case in the development phase of this certification exercise.
Although the main efforts of NRDC-T focused on a land-centric operation meeting NATO’s level of ambition, the maritime aspects were also played in order to feed into the joint operation decision making process. Remarkable results were achieved by the Training Audience improving their ability to operate in a joint and challenging environment. Being part of a response cell, which was simulating a Maritime Component Command, COE CSW was competent to provide its expertise on operations in Confined and Shallow Waters.
