The maritime commander for the NRF rotates among NATO's national maritime commands annually. STRIKFORNATO served in this role for 2017 after a successful certification process during exercises NOBLE MARINER and TRIDENT JUNCTURE in 2016.

The NRF is a highly ready and technologically advanced, multinational force made up of Land, Air, Maritime, and Special Operations Force components the Alliance can deploy quickly, wherever needed.
