Permanent On Call Joint Maritime Battle Force

Permanent On Call Joint Maritime Battle Force

The NATO Alliance is more relevant today in its core mission of collective security than it has been for over two decades.  To face the challenges East and South identified at the Wales Summit NATO must use all of its capabilities.  At the high-end of maritime maneuver and expeditionary striking power is the unique organization called STRIKFORNATO; the Alliance’s only permanently on call joint maritime Battle Force.  STRIKFORNATO’s unique value to the Alliance is its service as the only integration mechanism for U.S. Navy and Marine Corps combat power.  The STRIKFORNATO Battle Force is NATO’s only permanently available, trained and proven high-end joint maritime force.

During the 2010 NATO Summit in Lisbon, the Alliance identified the need for a more robust Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) to deal with the threat from the proliferation of short and medium range missiles. In support of Commander, NATO Air Command (AIRCOM), the headquarters responsible for NATO’s Ballistic Defense mission, and drawing on strong linkages with SIXTH Fleet and NATO Maritime Commands, STRIKFORNATO was recently tasked by SACEUR to execute Command and Control of NATO Maritime BMD units and help integrate this critical capability into NATO’s quiver.
