Approximately 36,000 personnel from more than 30 NATO and partner nations will participate in Exercise Trident Juncture 2015.
The drills are scheduled to take place in September throughout southern and central Europe, and across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.
Commander of the Support Group Philip Morrison noted in the release the construction of Zaragoza Joint Task Force Headquarters faced numerous challenges.
"We are encountering challenges that we did not anticipate, but the lessons we learn will be valuable for NATO in the future," Morrison said.
The Trident Juncture exercise was announced more than a year ago by NATO’s Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Russia and more than 12 major international organizations have been invited to observe the exercises.
