NATO plans to conduct about twenty “experiments” during the biggest military exercises in recent years near the Russian borders from October 25 to November 7, RIA Novosti reports citing Supreme Allied Command Transformation.
NATO’s Trident Juncture 2018 (TRJE18) exercises will be conducted in Norway and will involve about fifty thousand soldiers from thirty countries. “The exercises will provide an environment for testing, clarifying and further development of existing or new capabilities. NATO seeks to provide the best experimental results without putting the military exercises at risk. It will be accomplished by coordinating and integrating the experiments of its organizations and countries in TRJE18,” the Command’s website stated.
One of such experiments is the training for expeditious deployment of the coordination-command module for the deployment and control of air forces provided by the allied countries.
