ADL Initiative and NATO I/ITSEC Exhibit Booth

"Building Global Readiness with Lightweight, Low-cost, Innovative Learning Solutions"

13 November 2018

Visit the ADL Initiative/NATO International booth #2471 during I/ITSEC. This year’s theme is “Building Global Readiness with Lightweight, Low-cost, Innovative Learning Solutions.”  This event is a shared effort between the ADL Initiative, and our parent command Force Education and Training, and NATO Allied Command Transformation (ACT) and NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO).

The booth will host "Operation Coalition Warrior” (OCW), a showcase of innovative, distributed training and education capabilities for NATO, Nations, and other Coalition Partners. In prior years, I/ITSEC featured the “Operation Blended Warrior” demonstration, which highlighted live, virtual, and constructive training capabilities across different locations, training objectives, and functional systems. Operation Coalition Warrior shares similar themes—interoperability, distributed training, and innovation—but it also features distinct qualities:

  • Lightweight and low-cost solutions
  • Global partnership
  • The full continuum of learning, from just in time preparation to full scale exercises

Operation Coalition Warrior will involve themed discussions around Coalition learning requirements as well as a series of demonstrations for prototypes aimed at meeting those needs. In part, the goal of these activities is to nurture a growing government industry community around Coalition training and education.

I/ITSEC will take place November 26-30 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. Visit the convention site at
