STRIKFORNATO Hosts Ballistic Missile Defence Table Top Exercise
11 Mar 2016
VADM Foggo, Commander, Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO, leads discussion on maritime BMD with NATO senior leadership.
VADM Foggo and the staff of Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO hosted a table top exercise 3 and 4 March 2016 to develop a common understanding of phase 2 of the U.S. European Phased Adaptive Approach and how it will be integrated into the ballistic missile defence of NATO European Territory.
The table top exercise provided an opportunity for senior leaders from STRIKFORNATO, AIRCOM, MARCOM, SHAPE, U.S. EUCOM, and the U.S. delegation to NATO to discuss key issues affecting NATO BMD prior to the Exercise STEADFAST ALLIANCE 2016. Senior leaders also had the opportunity to participate in simulated missile defence scenarios and discuss how NATO BMD resources could be most effectively employed.
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency provided the simulation support and facilitation for the exercise.
