WELCOME TO ALLIED COMMAND TRANSFORMATION

NATO's Strategic Warfare Development Command

The National Liaison Representatives are uniformed military nationals appointed by their nation’s government to NATO in a national capacity. The NLRs provide Headquarters, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation with national viewpoints and information from national sources, and serve as a channel of communication between HQ SACT and their national authorities.

NATO MEMBER COUNTRIES

There is a clear advantage in having National Liaison Representatives collocated with Supreme Allied Commander Transformation in Norfolk, Virginia, as the transformation processes continue to develop. Early involvement by nations has been of mutual benefit for Allied Command Transformation, NATO, and the senior defence leadership of nations involved.
