Abstract:

In January 2005, NATO conducted its Crisis Management Exercise CMX to practice both existing and evolving crisis management concepts, procedures and arrangements. The CMX Experiment CMX05, which paralleled the exercise, focused on improving Alliance Decision Superiority at the PoliticalMilitary level. To achieve this goal, Allied Command Transformation ACT conducted three independent and distinct experiments 1 Crisis Situational Awareness, 2 Effects Based Operations at the Political Strategic Level and 3 Cooperation with Non-NATO International Actors. While it was recognized that all three experiments were important for further developing Alliance Decision Superiority, the main level of effort for the Experimentation Team was focused on Crisis Situational Awareness. For that experiment, ACT created a conceptual Crisis Management Fusion Centre CMFC for NATO HQ that was designed to improve situational awareness through the use of collaborative tools to develop a common NATO Strategic Picture NSP.
