Next Generation Rotorcraft Capability Team of Experts
Kalkar, 13-14 July 2016. The initial meeting of the Next Generation Rotorcraft Capability Team of Experts (NGRC ToE) was conducted at the Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC) in Kalkar, Germany on 13 and 14 July 2016. Representatives from Allied Command Transformation-Staff Element Europe (ACT-SEE), NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO), the NATO Industrial Advisory Group (NIAG), the Joint Air Power Competence Centre, IABG of Germany, the German Army, the UK Army and the US Army were represented.
The NGRC TOE is to identify and assess current and evolving applicable rotorcraft technologies, force structure implications, force capabilities, as well as operational concepts leading to the development of an integrated NGRC.
This group of experts will conduct an integrated two-year programme of work approved by the NATO Joint Capability Group on Vertical Lift (JCG VL) to identify, analyse, assess and document advanced rotorcraft technologies, force operational concepts, force development programmes, force structure implications and legacy system integration and interoperability.
As part of these efforts, JAPCC will support the NGRC ToE with relevant rotary wing expertise.
