JFC Brunssum Commander attended, as guest speaker, a webinar hosted by the Centre for European Policy and Analysis on the subject of Military Mobility

Brunssum, The Netherlands – Commander JFC Brunssum, General Jörg Vollmer, was Guest Speaker at a Webinar hosted by the Centre for European Policy and Analysis (CEPA) on the subject of Military Mobility on the 3rd of March. CEPA, a Washington-based organisation, has launched a project specifically designed to promote the establishment of the multiplicity of conditions needed to enable, facilitate, and improve military mobility across Europe.

Resilience relies on capabilities, common processes, standardization, enabled infrastructure and sustainment precautions

General Vollmer underlined: “Military mobility is a key to success. We need a 360 degrees coherent and comprehensive approach on the subject however, we have to continue to understand local and regional specific needs.” He also highlighted that: “Resilience relies on capabilities, common processes, standardization, enabled infrastructure and sustainment precautions.”

NATO is undertaking its biggest adaptation since the Cold War, with more investments, modern capabilities and NATO forces kept at high readiness levels. As part of this, NATO commanders are developing new military concepts and strategies to compliment the Alliance’s military priorities and evolving approach to current and future threats.

The Alliance has a responsibility to establish the conditions needed for the expeditious movement of military forces throughout Europe. The primary strategic purpose of military mobility is to move forces and resources rapidly over distance and, by so doing, afford its political and military leadership options to enhance deterrence and defence or engage in effective military crisis management beyond NATO’s borders. 

General Vollmer summarized that “deterrence only works efficiently when you proof that you are capable to act or react short notice effectively”.

The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) is a non-partisan think-tank dedicated to re-inventing Atlanticism for a more secure future. CEPA cutting-edge analysis and timely debates galvanize communities of influence while investing in the next generation of leaders to understand and address present and future challenges to transatlantic values and principles.
