Allied Reach 16 (AR 16) Comes to Riga, Latvia
This is a promotional video. Allied Reach 2016 (AR 16) is a biennial conference for NATO military leaders organised by Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT) that was created for the mutual exchange of ideas affecting military, strategic and transformational issues from an operational point of view. AR 16 will take place in Riga, Latvia from April 11-14.
The AR 16 agenda is coordinated with Supreme Allied Commander Europe, the International Military Staff and Military Committee. This collaboration allows NATO leaders to more effectively discuss the needs of today while considering the transformational concepts of tomorrow.
AR 16 is not a live exercise. However, AR 16 does bring together the senior military leadership of NATO to discuss, reflect and provide the best military advice on real-world strategic issues and future challenges that effect the Alliance.
SACT and SACEUR will take findings from AR 16 to adapt concepts, make improvements to the way NATO conducts business and review innovative insights on how NATO can address future challenges.
