Steadfast Flow 2021 – Testbed for NATO's Updated Logistical IT Tool

IZMIR, TURKEY - September 20 to 23, the NATO Movement & Transportation (M&T) and LogFAS (Logistics Functional Area Service) community participated in the Exercise Steadfast Flow 2021, hosted by the Turkish Army Transportation School in Izmir, Turkey.

A total number of 94 personnel, both civilian and service members, took up the invitation of NATO's Allied Movement Coordination Centre (AMCC), in order to deepen the relationship between the NATO Headquarters and the Alliance's member states, and to improve the information exchange procedures. Several members of the Joint Support and Enabling Command and the collocated standing Joint Logistics Support Group in Ulm, Germany, took part.

The Logistics Functional Area Service (LogFAS) is an essential IT-tool that serves as common agreed language among NATO logisticians. In the course of the exercise, the new Version LogFAS 7.0 was tested prior to its official release date, in order to get immediate "in action"-feedback from the end users. The NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) supported the exercise with developers and experts who received valuable feedback, which will be implemented into the final release version. "After not holding the event last year, it was good to see everyone face to face and discuss the improvements in the new release," stated Merve Dirim, NCIA Group Head Service Support Applications.

All participants agreed that this was again a perfect opportunity to refresh the M&T network, update procedural knowledge and know the new upcoming LogFAS features. 1st Lieutenant Ivan Horvat, member of the Ulm delegation, added "Having the opportunity to engage in small group discussion really helps to revise the operating concepts supporting LOGFAS and the M&T community."
