ACO Capabilities

NATO Joint Electronic Warfare Core Staff (JEWCS)
NATO JEWCS provides SACEUR and ACO subordinate commands with Electronic Warfare (EW) expertise and training in support of the planning and execution of NATO operations and exercises. In addition, JEWCS, under the direction of SHAPE, supports NATO HQ, SACEUR and SACT in the development of EW policy, doctrine, concepts and experimentation.

Strategic Airlift Capability
Ten NATO countries plus two Partner countries (Finland and Sweden) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding confirming their participation in Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) initiative to acquire, manage, support and operate three Boeing C-17 strategic transport aircraft.

The AWACS play a unique and valuable role for the Alliance by conducting a broad range of missions, ranging from air surveillance to air support and reconnaissance. In recent years, they increasingly have been deployed on complex and tactical missions, including air-to-air and air-to-ground control, airspace management, air policing, combat search and rescue, force marshalling and threat warning.

The NATO Multinational Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defence Battalion (CBRN) Defence Battalion will be a high readiness, multi-national, multi-functional Battalion, able to deploy quickly to participate in the full spectrum of NATO missions wherever NATO requires.

Standing NATO Maritime Groups 1 and 2
The Standing NATO Maritime Groups are a multinational, integrated maritime force made up of vessels from various allied countries. These vessels are permanently available to NATO to perform different tasks ranging from participating in exercises to actually intervening in operational missions.
