Brunssum, The Netherlands - On the 8th and 9th of February, JFC Brunssum personnel gave a series of lessons, via video-teleconference, on the subject of Communication and Information Services (CIS) to the Military Academy of the Armed Forces of Uzbekistan. Ten enthusiastic students received briefings from Subject Matter Experts on topics such as NATO’s CIS Processes, NATO’s CIS Services and Federated Mission Networking.
Expert Team Visits to NATO’s partner nations are regularly conducted by JFC Brunssum and are part of its contribution to cooperative security, one of NATO’s three core tasks. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this training activity had to be delivered virtually rather than physically. Using a different format to successfully complete the event served to emphasize NATO’s determination to fulfil its mission, even during a global pandemic, together with the Alliance’s ongoing commitment to military partnerships.
