What is NRDC-ITA?
NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Italy (NRDC-ITA) is a multinational Headquarters based in Milan with the main structures located in the "Ugo Mara" barracks in Solbiate Olona.
It is a High Readiness Headquarters which can be quickly dispatched to command and control NATO troops on missions within or beyond the territory of NATO member states, for the collective defence of Alliance territory or in pursuit of Alliance, EU or coalition security interests.
Thus, NRDC-ITA is an extremely skilled and responsive NATO multinational HQ with Italy as its framework nation, fully contributing to NATO’s efforts aimed at strengthening deterrence and defence, and projecting stability beyond its borders.
Lastly, NRDC-ITA is a battle-ready NATO formation that can effectively operate “Everywhere Rapidly” in support of NATO core tasks (Deterrence and Defense, Crisis Prevention and Management, and Cooperative Security).
