Preparation for Steadfast Jupiter 2023 - Joint Support and enabling command hosts core planning team meeting

ULM, Germany - In preparation of the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) exercise Steadfast Jupiter 2023 (STJU23), which will be conducted in October 2023, more than sixty participants from participating NATO entities, Non-NATO partners, NATO Host Nations and supporting agencies came together at the Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC) in Ulm, either physical present or via video conference, from 1 to 3 November, 2022. 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.

The major joint exercise STJU23 will be conducted in form of a Command Post Exercise, assisted by computers. The aim is to train a large number of NATO Command Structure (NCS) and NATO Force Structure (NFS) headquarters.

With STJU23, NATO ensures its readiness to adapt and develop to new challenges in a constantly changing security environment and its ability to deter and defend any aggressor on NATO territory.

Information on the side: What are NCS and NFS?

NCS is the backbone of NATO and is composed of permanent multinational headquarters at the strategic, operational and component levels of command. The NFS on the other hand is composed of allied national and multinational forces and headquarters placed at the Alliance’s disposal and allow for a high degree of flexibility to meet the requirements of conducting and sustaining operations.
