United Nations Humanitarian Aid
Scenario 5 - United Nations Humanitarian Aid Operation
The objective is to provide a scenario that depicts collaboration
by a loosely-coupled coalition of nations who supply humanitarian
aid to a region-of-interest.
Difficult climatic conditions in a region lead to a state of disaster
being declared by the local government. Foreign nations offer assistance
within a UN humanitarian aid programme, led by the UN. The military
forces deployed include support helicopters, medical units, engineering
capabilities and logistic support.
Aspects of Coalition Geospatial Support
The lead nation that commands the deployment of military forces
will provide the central command for geospatial support operations.
Supporting nations will have a variable amount of geospatial interoperability
with this lead nation. There will be a significant amount of lead
time in preparing for these operations, hence, adequate time to
overcome any important interoperability problems. The operational
tempo is low in the planning phase to moderate in the deployment
