The Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina (AF BiH) will conduct the exercise BiH PROGRESS 03 in September this year. The 1st Company of the 1st Battalion of 6th Infantry Brigade, together with an EOD platoon of the Tactical Support Brigade, will participate in the exercise. Using NATO’s Operational Capabilities Concept Evaluation and Feedback (OCC E&F), the exercise will increase their interoperability and will make the units more capable for participation in NATO-led Operations, thus becoming a credible partner in NATO’s ‘Pool of Forces’.

One of these capabilities is knowledge of special IT infrastructure. Part of this infrastructure consists of the Ericsson Switchboard that is used in AF BiH for voice communication. For operation and maintenance purposes, it requires special skills and theoretical and practical background. The AF BiH and EUFOR have agreed that this course is supported by a Mentoring Team.
