KOPR1 EPR was designed to be a closed forum of key delivery agents for STEADFAST JUPITER 22 to discuss the redesigning of the exercise, with representatives from twenty different NATO entities in attendance. Representatives worked in close cooperation to discuss action plans, exercise designs and mitigate risks for STEADFAST JUPITER 2022.
STEADFAST JUPITER 2022 is a strategic, operational, and tactical-level exercise designed to train and evaluate NATO Response Force 2023 (NRF23) under the lead of JFC Naples, as well as several other NATO entities, such as STRIKFORNATO.
The exercise will contribute to the concept for the Deterrence and Defence of the Euro-Atlantic Area (DDA), validate a variety of joint capabilities, and strengthen NATO's 360-degree approach to deterrence and defence involving different joint operations areas.
JFC Naples is one of three Joint Force Commands in the NATO Command Structure. The mission of JFC Naples is to prepare for, plan and conduct military operations in order to preserve the peace, security and territorial integrity of Alliance member states throughout Supreme Allied Commander Europe's (SACEUR) Area of Responsibility (AOR) and beyond.
STRIKFORNATO is SACEUR's premier, rapidly deployable and flexible, maritime power projection 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.
