Smart Defence NATO Project “Deployable Air Activation Modules” (DAAM) – Multinational Cooperation in Deployed Air Logistics
The capability to perform Deployed Air Operations relies greatly on the capability to provide Combat Service Support (CSS) to the Deployed Air Assets, enabling them to operate. However, not all NATO Countries are able to set up and support a fully-fledged Deployed Operations Base (DOB).
Consequently, NATO has started Smart Defense Initiative (SDI) Project 1.16 “DAAM”, envisaging the set up and operation of a DOB through Multinational CSS Modules, provided by different Participating Nations. This Pooling of Assets can bring to the creation of a “Tool Box”, allowing also Countries unable to project a full DOB to participate in the CSS to future Deployed Air Operations, by providing entire or partial CSS Modules. DAAM is therefore a budgetless aggregation paradigm, better organizing already existing assets.
After the definition of the individual Nations’ CSS Assets, their Training & Integration (T&I) will be necessary step forward, to be established by a DAAM Working Group, led by ITA, as that Project’s Lead Nation.
Specific Multinational CSS Exercises, Trials and Training Events are required for full T&I of the Modules, or Module components (personnel and assets).
