NSC collaborates with NATO31/08/17Defence
Simulation, training and consultancy specialist NSC is to assist NATO projects in The Hague, the Netherlands, and La Spezia, Italy.
Chris Gray, the company’s principal operational analyst, recently returned to the Netherlands having spent five months of 2016 helping to identify the resources needed by NATO to meet its operational ambitions.
Gray has been reunited with the NATO Communication and Information (NCI) agency team tasked with quantifying the military assets and efforts required from each of the alliance’s member nations.
He previously helped to consolidate and ‘mine’ data from 28 contributing countries to define future minimum capability requirements and identify any potential shortfalls.
A second member of the NSC team is currently supporting NATO’s Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) in the development of a strategy for its Multinational Shared Training concept.
The role will review proposals for the structure of a combined action and implementation plan and examine the performance parameters of NATO stakeholders.
Due to be completed in December, the work is the latest chapter in NSC’s 26-year association with NATO agencies, headquarters and research establishments in Europe and the United States of America.
NSC chief executive Jeremy Spurr said: “That organisations of such standing should hand pick members of our team speaks volumes for the quality of our people.
“NATO and the European Defence Agency’s excellence are recognised internationally and we are proud our specialists continue to be at the forefront of their respective fields.”
