The COE CWO
is a NATO subsidiary body contributing to development, revision and update of
allied concept, doctrine and standardisation publications through leverage of
its expertise in the area of Cold Weather Operations.
The COE CWO provides an
active support to respective NATO bodies in order to facilitate standardisation
and achieve the required level of interoperability.
Standards and Doctrine development (S&D Dev)
are to explore current practices and then suggest improvements to existing
doctrines, procedures and standards as and when appropriate, for subsequent
endorsement by the strategic commands and/or NATO HQ.
In this role, our Standards & Doctrine Development branch serves as a tool which
analyses existing publications, seeks for incoherence and, when appropriate,
provides proposals according to the NATO standardisation process.
