Abstract:

This report offers an overview of the Royal Canadian Navys intent to re-introduce Naval Fire Support NFS to its fleet and how this capability will support land operations. Its purpose was to provide exercise planners associated with the Canadian Forces Warfare Centre and Australias Defence Science and Technology Organisation meeting in December 2013 with sufficient details to determine whether to include NFS capabilities during upcoming exercise events CAGE IIIb and JOINTEX. Following the planning conference, this concept was adopted for these exercises.
