It is critical for NATO to be provided with a CBRN FS capability to defend against potential CBRN threats. In 2018 the Investment Committee (IC) tasked the SCs to re-evaluate the need for the capability. In MAR 2022, the IC agreed to transition the CBRN FS programme to the Common Funded Capability Delivery Governance Model (CFCDGM), and to potentially incorporate additional requirements.
CBRN FS will enable NATO to have improved capabilities to help prevent CBRN incident; protect NATO forces from the effects of CBRN incidents, and take recovery action, as needed.
CBRN FS will have to enable interoperability and automated exchange, sharing and synchronization of data and information with key NATO core and functional systems (intelligence, operational planning, C2, Joint fires and others), across security domains, as well as with key national systems. The new system shall also be compliant with Federated Mission Networking (FMN) standards and employ standardized interfaces to interact with other systems, to the extent possible.
