The NATO Command and Control Centre of Excellence supported the computer-assisted command post exercise (CAX/CPX) STEADFAST JACKAL 2022 (STJA22), which concluded on December 1, 2022. In order to train and build a strong Joint Command and Control Capability (Deployable) and further preserve the peace, security, and territorial integrity of Alliance member states.
Supporting exercises with C2 expertise is a core activity for the NATO C2COE. This in order to catalyze C2 by Evaluation and Analysis, focussing on the overarching joint function C2.
STJA22 was designed to train and evaluate NATO Rapid Deployable Corps – Italy (NRDC-ITA) and its Joint Logistics Support Group (JLSG) in planning and conducting a small joint operation at the operational and tactical levels, with a focus on the land, air, and cyberspace domains. It refined NRDC-ITA’s their warfighting skillsets in a simulated contingency environment where they established command and control to overcome complex operational dilemmas with a distinctly comprehensive approach.
Directed by NATO’s Joint Warfare Centre, the exercise trains the participating NATO Nations and Non-NATO Partners to ensure the Alliance maintains its readiness. This is a key exercise for the Alliance, as Nations will be trained and evaluated on their ability to successfully conduct joint NATO operations in the following year.
