At the NATO Summit in Madrid 2022, nations agreed to set a new baseline for NATO’s deterrence and defence posture to continue protecting NATO’s population and defending every inch of allied territory at all times. The agreement included enhancing our nations’ defensive capabilities and significantly strengthening NATO’s posture to ensure Allies’ security and deterrence our adversaries for the long term. This commitment is in line with NATO’s 360-degree approach to leverage the land, air, maritime, cyber, and space domains, against all threats and challenges.
Allies committed to deploying additional robust in-place combat-ready forces on NATO’s eastern flank, to be scaled up from the existing battlegroups to brigade-size units where and when required, underpinned by credible rapidly available reinforcements, prepositioned equipment, and enhanced command and control.
The Joint Air and Space Power Conference 2023 will explore how NATO should further proceed on its path to address the challenges and opportunities to achieve deterrence and defence through NATO Joint Air Power. NATO Joint Air Power will have to be credible, capable and available across domains to face a multi-faceted, demanding environment to contribute to the Alliance and ensure it remains a credible organization for the defence of its members and their shared values of freedom and democracy.
