Methodology

This one-week course is comprised of lectures and syndicate work. Day 1 is primarily focused on creating a baseline understanding of BMD/TBMD from a historical context and how NATO ballistic missile defense strategy, doctrine, and systems fit into the NATO command structure and operational planning process. Days 2, 3, and part of 4 focus on BMD/TBMD planning and operations with syndicate work at the end of each day to reinforce the day’s lessons. The second half of Day 4 and 5 focus on applying the information learned from the lessons in scenario-based syndicate work.
