Cohort company MASS in association with Joint Warfare (JW) has delivered Exercise Joint Horizon 18 (JH18) and Joint Venture 18 (JV18) training events at Headquarters (HQ) British Forces Cyprus and at the Royal Air Force St Mawgan in Cornwall.

The JH18 aimed at training the UK Joint Force HQ in smaller-scale operations, while the aim of JV18 was to exercise the Standing Joint Forces HQ over a number of training objectives that would be explored during the planning and execution of the two events. 

Both exercises comprised military personnel and a range of other governmental and non-governmental organisations and partner nations to help develop a pan-governmental/coalition approach to each task.

The two separate yet interlinked exercises ran concurrently. To deliver the exercises, MASS began working under the JW direction around ten months ago to develop a fictitious scenario able to meet the differing requirements of the two HQs. 

The development involved creating fictional countries including all the supporting geographic, environmental, demographic detail and challenges that a real military operation might encounter.

The arrangement of scenario allowed forces to exercise in a deployed setting and practise joint planning and execution throughout the exercise at operational level to explore and test C2 related interactions.

MASS also provided simulation support to replicate forces deployed on the exercise including events management as well as real-life management support at both locations.
