As part of the overall DOBEX/VOLCANEX 16 Planning Process, the EAG organized the first MEL/MIL Workshop at Royal Air Force High Wycombe, GBR from 12 -14 April 2015.
This year’s LIVEX VOLCANEX will be heavily Force Protection and Medical focused. The first step of the MEL/MIL scripting team was the creation of several Mission Event/Incident Cards covering the spectrum from a low to a high intensity scenario. Overall 20 Subject Matter Experts, mainly from the exercise host Germany, took part in the workshop and provided a wide spectrum of expertise which led to an excellent repertoire of events covering all exercise objectives.
Once the multinational exercise planning group approved the results of this workshop during the Main Planning Conference in May 16, the MEL/MIL scripting team will meet again at Lechfeld Airbase to finalize the overall MEL/MIL Campaign Plan with respect to the constraints of the Lechfeld Airbase training area.
