Camp Sustainment Focus Day
The need for rapidly deployable infrastructure to meet contingent operational requirements remains an important NATO priority. Standardisation and adaptability of infrastructure are key considerations as are building equipment, plant vehicles and contractor relationships, particularly when deployed on overseas operations.
DEPLOYABLE INFRASTRUCTURE IN AN OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
The provision of base facilities is critical for the support, redeployment and operation of military forces. The ability to maximise the capabilities and utilisation of existing base resources and to anticipate future facility-related requirements will be important in maintaining overall force effectiveness.
SUSTAINMENT SOLUTIONS FOR DEPLOYABLE ASSETS
Due to the nature of NATO’s current operating areas, water and energy supplies may not meet the requirements of a deployed force. Furthermore, local infrastructure may be unable to meet the extra demand required to fulfil a force’s provisions. As such, a deployed force must be able to sustain itself utilising external means.
HOST NATION SUPPORT IN MAINTAING INFRASTRUCTURE
Due to the change in operating environments, the increasing trend to conduct expeditionary style deployments on a global scale, including to areas which have few resources, means that reliance on Host Nation Support (HNS) can no longer be assumed. This places greater emphasis on engineer activities which will increasingly be required to meet the demands of the local populace as well as the Alliance force itself.
