STRIKFORNATO concludes Operational Liaison and Reconnaissance Team training

OEIRAS, PORTUGAL - STRIKFORNATO conducted its training cycle for its Operational Liaison and Reconnaissance Team (OLRT) in order to maintain the necessary level of training and high state of readiness, between 11-13 May 2021.

The OLRT is responsible to liaise and coordinate with the host nation authorities, international organizations/non-governmental organizations (IOs/NGOs), and other stakeholders, in a potential theatre of operations.

The OLRT contributes to gaining early, first-hand situational awareness in theatre, facilitating the rapid establishment of liaison and conducting reconnaissance in a designated area.

STRIKFORNATO can deploy an OLRT within 72-hours of notification and establish a standing watch in its Joint Operations Centre (JOC) to develop situational awareness and begin coordination.

On order, STRIKFORNATO will provide a Joint Battle Staff under SACEUR's direct Operational Command (OPCOM) to deliver a rapidly deployable and scalable headquarters capable of planning and executing full spectrum joint maritime operations, primarily through the integration of U.S. naval and amphibious forces, in order to provide assurance, deterrence, and collective defence for the Alliance.
