CADENCE support to development of NATO OCCASUS Scenario / Ex TRIDENT JUNCTURE 2018


In 2017, CADENCE were contracted to provide fulltime support to the NATO Joint Warfare Centre in order to write a new NATO scenario called OCCASUS. CADENCE provided the East European Doctrine / OPFOR / Intelligence-Land Subject Matter Expertise in order to support Exercise Setting / Scenario Production. This Setting & Scenario was used for the first time in support of Ex TRIDENT JUNCTURE 2018. In order to achieve this goal, CADENCE provided a further ‘uplift’ in 2018 to support Scenario ‘modification’ efforts. CADENCE personnel have contributed to the planning, development, and delivery of this new OCCASUS exercise Setting / Scenario project that addresses relevant geo-strategic situations in accordance with NATO directives and direction. CADENCE were further involved in the Incident Development, MEL / MIL and Execution of Ex TRIDENT JUNCTURE 2018 in support of both NATO JWC and NATO Joint Force Command-Naples.
