Steadfast Deterrence: the execution

NATO Space COE contributed to STEADFAST DETERRENCE 2024 providing Space expertise in both scenarios, in the roles of the Response Cell Chief for Space (blue) and as OPFOR Chief Space (red)!

This NATO’s first major joint exercise for the Multi-domain Allied Reaction Force (ARF) was concluded in May 2024.

Scheduled by Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) and directed by the NATO Joint Warfare Centre, STEADFAST DETERRENCE 2024 was designed to train and evaluate NATO Rapid Deployable Corps - Italy (NRDC-ITA) as NATO’s first ARF Headquarters.

The exercise brought together more than 900 military and civilian personnel from NATO, Allied nations, and partner organizations in response to a simulated highly complex crisis in the North and the Arctic region. It demonstrated NATO’s cohesion to a solid deterrence posture for the defence of the Alliance.
