The military headquarters hosted the so-called First Core Planning Team Meeting (CPTM-1) on behalf of the exercise’s lead, Commander Allied Joint Force Command in Brunssum, General Guglielmo Miglietta, which serves as a milestone throughout the planning and product development stage of the overall exercise planning process.
This is another big step in proving JSEC's readiness
"The CPTM-1 is the first exercise planning meeting in a series of events leading up to the execution of Steadfast Jupiter 2023, a NATO wide major joint exercise. JSEC takes pride in hosting this meeting as this is another big step in proving its readiness," Colonel Stig Taraldsen, JSEC's Assistant Chief of Staff of the Training and Exercise Division emphasises during the event.
Since its Full Operational Capability in September 2021, JSEC continuously grows as a unit and is fully able to support the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) and the wider NATO community, demonstrating this readiness during different exercises like STJU23.
