HADERSLEV, Denmark – A new facility, which will support NATO's Deployable CIS Module (DCM) ´E´ of the 1st NATO Signal Battalion, officially opened on Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018 following a ribbon cutting ceremony in Haderslev, Denmark.
"These facilities are a key element in NATO's capabilities, since they contribute so much in strengthening and enhancing the operational capability of the Unit," said Commander of NATO CIS Group Major General Walter Huhn.
The new infrastructure boosts NATO's capacity to provide its deployed troops with required deployable communication information systems (DCIS) capabilities.
"These facilities are key enablers that make the DCM in Haderslev a fully functional, operational unit, ready to respond at short notice on the orders of SACEUR and NATO in support of NATO operations and mission, so important to us at this current time," said Major General Huhn.
"We should be assured that NATO has responded to a changed security environment by enhancing its deterrence and defence posture and the Alliance will continue to adapt itself to meet the threats of today and tomorrow," he added.
The NATO CIS Group is the largest organisation within Allied Command Operations (ACO), with 1500 personnel spread across 14 countries and provides all NATO deployable CIS capabilities during operations and exercises.
