Abstract:

This article outlines the approach participants took during AUSTERE CHALLENGE 2009 to execute a coordinated U.S. government response to an international crisis and describes the best practices developed during the exercise. It also offers recommendations relevant for future deployment of interagency teams, whether for joint exercises or an actual crisis. This exercise reinforced the importance of interagency coordination as soon as possible when a crisis begins to unfold, so the expertise of each agency is brought to bear early in the planning process. The synergies derived from exercises such as AUSTERE CHALLENGE 2009 help us leverage our collective strengths and ultimately enhance our ability to respond effectively to future crises, wherever they may be.
