Key leaders in NATO Headquarters, Allied Command Operations (ACO), Allied Command Transformation (ACT), and ISAF Troop Contributing Nations (TCNs) are invited to attend the NATO Bi-SC sponsored Senior Leader Seminar (SLS) to be held in the United Kingdom (UK) on 5 February 2013. The SLS will take place at the NATO Intelligence Fusion Centre (NIFC) at Royal Air Force (RAF) Molesworth and will include a briefing on the UK's Level 3 Defence Exploitation Facility (DEF).
The primary purpose of the event is to demonstrate how a Comprehensive Approach encompassing multi-national Smart Defence collaboration and Level 3 Exploitation enhances the Alliance's Counter-IED (C-IED) and Counter Threat Networks capabilities. The SLS will highlight possible future US JIEDDO Counter-IED Operations/Intelligence Integration Centre (COIC) and NATO collaboration/Smart Defence opportunities. The goal is to leverage the network and capabilities of the NIFC, by highlighting its potential capability as a Federated Node of the US JIEDDO COIC, and to provide an understanding of the Level 3 exploitation capability provided by the UK DEF. The deadline for signing up will be Tue, 15 Jan 13; and the deadline for submitting foreign visitor access details is Mon, 28 Jan 13.
The primary ACT point of contact for the SLS is LtCol Kevin Scott, C-IED IPT Leader, Comm: +1-757-747-4244, NCN: 555-4244.
