Tracking and Monitoring

With 18,000 participating soldiers, "Saber Strike 2018" has been not only an operational but also a logistical effort. The movement of troops as well as their medical safety have been monitored and coordinated from Headquarters Multinational Corps Northeast. Both the Regional Movement Co-ordination Centre (RMCC) and the Patient Evacuation Co-ordination Centre (PECC) will be working at full speed until every soldier and piece of equipment returns to its home base in July.

Needless to say, the transfer of personnel and material from one location to another is essential for the military to be able to support an ongoing deployment or respond effectively to any emergent threat. For the purposes of "Saber Strike 2018", our RMCC specialists have set up a Logistic Functional Area System (LOGFAS) database to easily track and visualize the movements of convoys on the ground. In this way, every delay or incident which could potentially affect the schedule of the exercise has been immediately registered and reported. All this has been done in cohesion with many partners and institutions, including the respective National Movement Co-ordination Centres.

The medical safety of moving troops has been supervised in a similar manner. The main role of the PECC is monitoring and advising the Chain of Rescue. The overall effort has involved close civil-military cooperation as the medical basis for the soldiers while exercising was civilian infrastructure. Every soldier requiring hospitalization has been tracked.

RMCC and PECC, both established in Szczecin, operate in collaboration with the two teams of U.S. Army Europe deployed to Baltic Barracks. Equally important, they have also been supported by the NATO Force Integration Units (NFIUs). Yet again, the units have proven conclusively that their organizational cohesion and knowledge of the operational environment are in place to support HQ MNC NE and NATO in their mission of securing the northeastern flank.
