The success of current and future NATO operations is influenced by operational analysis that rely on quantitative and qualitative data of operational records therefore it is of critical importance to promote the collection of and the ready access to operational records. The SAS-100 Specialist Team was commissioned to formulate a suite of procedures that allows for easy search, access, and immediate retrieval of NATO operational records across various military commands, and to identify the actorsorganizations that would take collective responsibility or oversight of the proposed system, and its updating. The primary focus of the SAS-100 Specialist Team was on tactical, field level records, with its secondary focus being on strategic level records. Its work covered NATO records as well as NATO TCN records from current and legacy operations. The report presents an envisioned NATO digital repository with regard to contents, formats, searchability, access, classification and security issues. In this context it highlights legal considerations, ownership, promotion and support. The report offers 20 practical recommendations on how an envisioned NATO digital repository can be created.
