I very much appreciate your pro-active approach and attitude in overcoming challenges, including physical separation and distance, related to the efficient execution of STEADFAST COBALT 22 Exercise in the virtual environment.

Commander said that the challenges we face come also with advances in technologies vis-à-vis current equipment limitations; these challenges may be compounded as needs-identified shift to needs fulfilled, based on the acquisition cycle.  

That is why we seek to adjust our DCIS through reconfiguration efforts as well as leveraging new technologies such as updated satellite bandwidth capabilities in order to overcome present limitations

The NCISG COM and NCISG DCOM/COS concluded by congratulating the recipients of the STCO22 Award and thanked everyone for their exceptional professionalism and support of the NATO CIS Group.
