What is Combined Endeavor?

Now in its fifth year, Combined Endeavor is an annual two-week exercise

sponsored by the U.S. European Command. It is designed to iron out communications

and network interoperability issues between the United States, other NATO

nations and various Partnership for Peace countries.

Officials document every technical glitch encountered and solution discovered

during the more than 3,000 tests conducted. Then they distribute what is

called an "Interoperability Guide" for the nations to use for future reference.

Combined Endeavor 2000 runs through May 25. Plans for next year's exercise,

which will include even more nations, are in the works.
