CCOPAB supports the certification of the Airborne Infantry Brigade as Rapid Deployment Force (RDF)
Rio de Janeiro, RJ. On 02 July, the Brazilian Peace Operations Joint Training Center (CCOPAB), Sergio Vieira de Mello Center, supported the Public Information Section of the Eastern Military Command (CML), during the simulation of a press conference, in order to certify the General Staff of the Airborne Infantry Brigade as Rapid Deployment Force (RDF).
The commander of that Large Unit, MG Helder, had to answer a series of questions prepared by journalists, simulating thus a press conference. Questions covered the activities of the simulated task force. The simulation integrates the certification process of RDFs.
The RDF is a pioneer system of certification of the Brazilian Army to validate the composition of troops able to carry out national defense operations, always being ready to be deployed in any part of the country, at any time. The Airborne Infantry Brigade was the first Brazilian Army troop to undergo this process.
