Since November 2019 NMIOTC has developed a Coastal Urban Training Area (CUTA), as a powerful tool in NMIOTC’s training toolbox and with this offers new training opportunities to the specialized teams and SOF teams in the terms of Coastal Urban Warfare.
Trainings concerning Close Quarter Battle (CQB) techniques, Hostage Recovery, Breaching TTPs, Non Combatant Evacuation Operations, etc. can be delivered day and night in a mock up environment with action analysis capabilities.
Since October 2014 NMIOTC is offering the option of using a tag boat or a tagged 60-ft vessel for conducting exercises and drills underway in the vicinity of Souda Bay. Those vessels are adding extra realism to the training at a relatively low cost, increasing the difficulty of the drills day and night.
Since autumn 2013 NMIOTC has acquired and developed a designated training area (LGR-28) for helicopter and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) flights at low altitude (below 1000΄) in an obstacle-free area, offering the opportunity to evaluate selected personnel and special tactics in a controlled environment.
The specific training will involve the skills and knowledge required by an individual to fly a UAV or deploy from a helicopter as part of a team, while using fast-rope tactics, techniques, and procedures. The drills will involve the application of safety and rappelling policies, regulations, protocols and procedures required to safely fast-rope from a helicopter.
