“Command Team” Issues in Maritime Interdiction Operations in Support of International Efforts to Manage the Migrant and Refugee Crisis at Sea

The world is facing an escalating migration crisis, with unprecedented waves of people (almost a million in 2016) fleeing to Europe. These waves consist of both refugees forced to flee to save their lives or preserve their freedom, as well as economic migrants, moving in order to improve their lives. Since people composing these mixed flows are unable to enter a particular state legally, they often employ the services of human smugglers and embark on very unseaworthy vessels and in dangerous seas. Naval forces play an expanding role in countering this phenomenon alongside law enforcement agencies. As a result, NMIOTC has recognized that there is a need to train naval personnel in order to acquire the necessary knowledge to manage migrant and refugee related incidents at sea.

The IED, as an established explosive threat to military and other operations, will undoubtedly continue to feature as a weapon of choice against our forces and populations in the future as it does now. Past and current experiences have clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of the IED in all types of situation, including at sea and in ports, where the accepted concepts of IEDD and Force Protection are being challenged in order to better combat the IED threat and provide responses capable of returning the situation to normal as safely and competently as possible.

In order to better understand how to conduct M-IEDD operations in the Maritime Operating Environment the challenges and limitations imposed by the environment have to be considered and understood. In pursuing a viable concept to apply to M-IEDD operations, accepted principles of operation and best practices developed over many years in the land domain cannot be set aside by those with maritime jurisdiction, but rather they must be considered and then employed to underpin a M-IEDD concept for the development of Techniques Tactics and Procedures (TTPs), as appropriate.

Furthermore, NMIOTC has developed this course in accordance with NATO standards and guidelines aiming at mitigating the IED threat focusing mostly on the “Defeat the Device (DtD)” line of effort which is a critical supporting function necessary to preserve the Alliance Center of Gravity (CoG) by minimizing casualties. This M-IEDD Course intends to cover the decisive condition in order to respond to operational requirements to provide IEDD training capability to all Nations and Partners.

This course aims to educate and train qualified EOD personnel to competently undertake M-IEDD operations on-board vessels and other maritime infrastructure in support of C-IED or other Maritime Operations.

On completion of the Course, students will be able to:

  1. Understand the IED threat in the context of maritime and related operations and how the basic principles of IEDD can be successfully applied to task resolution.
  2. Understand the core and specialist subject knowledge including: specialist skills and render, safe techniques in support of M-IEDD.
  3. Understand the significance of the related subjects of search and site exploitation (e.g. evidence preservation and collection, considerations during M-IEDD tasks).
  4. Plan M-IEDD operations, including: task appreciation, appraisal of tactical considerations in respect of the operating environment, M-IEDD team make-up, required resources, access and requisite on-board actions.

In this direction, the Centre supports with all its means NATO approach to Crisis Management as it was expressed through latest NATO’s Strategic Concept and particularly “NATO will therefore engage, where possible and when necessary, to prevent crises, manage crises, stabilize post-conflict situations and support reconstruction”.

 

NMIOTC in accordance with Alliance’s gravity given to man age insecurities, instabilities and eventually crises as considered an essential core task, provides this course in cooperation with the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (School of Sciences – Faculty of Geology and Geoenvironment, Postgraduate Program “Environmental, Disaster and Crisis Management Strategies”) in order to enhance trainees capabilities and allow them to deal with a wide range of emerging crises in an increasingly complex, dangerous, even unstable at certain cases, environment.

 

The aim of the course is the transmission to the trainees of basic knowledge and skills in order to understand essential definitions and discriminate them, such as disasters, crises and crisis management in the maritime domain. Taking into account Alliance’s direction that all crises can be prevented through diplomacy or other appropriate measures, NMIOTC will provide all the necessary skills and tools so that the engaged trainees, coming either from NATO countries or partner nations, can be from the one hand proactive and reactive if an upcoming crisis occurs and on the other hand capable of conducting, participating, supporting maritime operations, article 5 or non article 5 crisis response operations (NA5CRO) by achieving interoperability and standardization in the light of the Alliance. Modular structure of the Course is as follows:
