Abstract : NETN was originated to integrate and enhance existing national capabilities and focus on the education and training of NATO Headquarters' staffs and NATO forces. A NETN consisting of a persistent infrastructure, distributed training and education tools, and standard operating procedures not only supports the training of NATO headquarters but also enables the Nations to collaborate with each other. NETN promises a cost and time efficient capability, and broader and deeper interoperability. It also introduces an opportunity to integrate the training of NATO headquarters with the tactical forces when needed for short notice mobile mission rehearsal training. To meet this demand, Allied Command Transformation requested that NATO Modelling and Simulation Group start a technical activity in 2006. Modelling and Simulation Group 068 (MSG-068 NETN) was formed for this purpose in 2007. The MSG-068 NETN Task Group recommends and demonstrates a way forward for interoperability, technical standards and architectures to link the NATO and national training and education centres to provide a persistent capability, and also identifies and recommends roles and responsibilities within the scope of NETN. MSG-068 NETN Task Group conducted a distributed standalone experiment between October 25 and November 5, 2010 and a distributed demonstration during I/ITSEC 2010.
