COPA Operations (COPA OPS) will plan, manage and support already agreed activities and generate and identify new initiatives in the areas of single service operations, joint international operations, logistics and movement and transportation in order to enhance the Nordic cooperation in the area of military operations.
The focus for COPA OPS is Afghanistan. All the Nordic nations contribute to the ISAF operation and close cooperation has been established within the areas of medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) helicopters, logistics and the operational mentoring (OMLT) of the Afghan Army. These activities improves the operational effect of the Nordic nations and have a positive economical impact.
COPA operations also develop future plans for the mentoring and partnering in connection to the transition of responsibility to the Afghan Army, in order to secure a rational Nordic approach in the transition process.
