LUXEMBOURG - The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) is supporting Exercise NightHawk 2021, a joint exercise bringing together Special Forces from several NATO Allies and Partner nations to train in full spectrum special operations in a realistic tactical scenario.
Exercise Nighthawk is led by the Danish Special Operations Command and aims to prepare special forces to plan, prepare, execute and assess assaults or insertions following intelligence. The exercise takes place in Aalborg, Denmark and other locations in the country between the 27 of September and the 7th of October. This activity involves several units and over 2000 participants.
NSPA was tasked to support the NATO Composite- Special Operations Component Command (C-SOCC), a tri-national command formed by the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark, in the deployment and setup of a 280-person CP156 mobile infrastructure facility.
The facilities consist of a 220-person office area, 280-person accommodation area, a 500-person kitchen as well as power, ablutions, force protection and wastewater collection and disposal. The camp, set up in only 10 days, is the largest since Exercise TRIDENT JUNCTURE in 2015 and is a demonstration of NSPA's ability to rapidly deploy and provide technical oversight of a CP156 camp build-up.
