NFIU plays vital role in Steadfast Cobalt

Bucharest, Romania -  With over 1000 personnel taking part in Exercise Steadfast Cobalt 16 (SC16) from May 22 to June 3, the Communications staff of the NATO Force Integration Unit in Bucharest, Romania have been closely involved with the exercise and observing the preparation and operations of deployable communication assets.

NFIUs play a critical role in the deployment of rapidly mobile forces where Reception, Staging and Onward Movement are key functions. However the ability to communicate at many levels is vital.

NFIU Romanian Commander Colonel Catalin Ticulescu said," Although my staff are part of the training audience for SC16, participation has been invaluable for our role in Ex NOBLE JUMP17 and supporting eNRF deployment next year.”

With the NFIU ROU fully operational by the Warsaw Summit in July, Exercise Steadfast Cobalt 16 has provided the platform for evaluating deployable communications and command and control systems.

"With the vast experience from participating nations on this exercise, my team have been able to refine communication procedures which will closely support the NFUI executing its core functions in any defensive deployment,” added Colonel Ticulescu .
