Rear Admiral Jan C. Kaack joins the NATO Exercise Steadfast Defender 2021 in Ulm

Ulm, Germany, Tuesday, 11 May 2021 – Rear Admiral Jan C. Kaack, Commander of NATO's Joint Warfare Centre (JWC) in Stavanger, Norway, joined NATO's flagship exercise Steadfast Defender 2021 in Ulm. He visited the Commanders of the Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC) and the Standing Joint Logistics Support Group (SJLSG) on arrival in the Wilhelmsburg Barracks.

Another important milestone on our way to operational readiness...

The Admiral and his team direct the command post exercise (CPX) portion of NATO's flagship exercise, Steadfast Defender 2021, with JSEC as the primary training audience. Through the JWC's collective defence scenario, NATO will test and evaluate JSEC's ability to conduct and support military response options that enable movement control, security coordination, force protection, as well as liaison between Allied forces, the nations, and other stakeholders.
