font size    

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Russia are to stage a joint command post exercise (CPX) of Theater Missile Defense (TMD) in Moscow on Oct. 16-25, NATO headquarters announced on Thursday.

This will be the third exercise of its kind held jointly by NATO and Russia. The site for the exercise is at the Russian Simulation Facility located in the Research and Development Center of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

The CPX is a computer-assisted, real time event that focuses on command and control of missile defense forces deployed in a specific theater of operations.

According to NATO headquarters, the purpose of this exercise is to validate the Experimental Concept and associated Experimental Concept of Operations (CONOPS) developed by the joint NATO-Russia TMD working group.

Over sixty participants from eleven NATO nations and eighty participants from the Russian Federation are going to take part in the exercise.

This is the third in a series of joint NATO-Russia TMD exercises. The initial CPX was conducted at the Joint National Integration Center in the United States in 2004.

Last year The Netherlands hosted Cooperative Optic Windmill ( CPX2) at De Peel Airbase. This third CPX will build on the work conducted previously and be a prelude for a first Field Training Exercise, provisionally scheduled for autumn 2007.
