BI-SC CAPABILITY CODES AND CAPABILITY STATEMENTS (CC&S)


1. Purpose. The Bi-SC approved Capability Codes and Capability Statements
(CC&CS) provides a common language for capabilities in Defence Planning (DP) and
Operational Planning (OP). CC&CS defines the capabilities used in DP products
(Minimum Capability Requirements, Capability Targets, Capability Surveys) and OP
products (NRF, RFLs, GFLs and CJSORs).

2. Capability Codes are a unique alphanumeric descriptor of a functional grouping


of capabilities, while Capability Statements express capability requirements along the
DOTMLPFI 1 lines of development.

3. CC&CS were employed for the first time in the 2004 Force Proposal cycle and
reviewed/improved in the subsequent NDPP cycles since then. They are now
accepted widely and used throughout NATO, providing a common language for
describing capabilities. The CC&CS have also been adopted by the European Union
Military Staff (EUMS) for use in both their long-term and Operations Planning.
CC&CS provides a sufficient level of granularity for requesting forces, noting that
necessary mission tailoring could result in deviations from an original capability
statement.

4. Review. The previous revision of the Bi-SC CC&CS was completed in 2011
(Reference A), and included a significant effort from a large community of
stakeholders from across the Alliance. The overall aim of the CC&CS review was to
revalidate and further develop, as appropriate, the existing set of CC and associated
CS in order to ensure their relevance for use in subsequent analysis of capability
requirements and have the resulting products staffed and endorsed by the SCs.
Whereas the review process for the CC&CS built on the work done during the
Capability Requirement Review 2012 (CRR12), it incorporated the recent changes
and recommendations from relevant policies, doctrines, STANAGs and Lessons
Learned as well as operational requirements arising from the current strategic
environment.

5. Allied Command Transformation (ACT) was in the lead for the CRR16 CC&CS
review effort with support from ACO, International Staff (IS) / International Military Staff
(IMS), all Planning Domains (PD) and other subject matter expert bodies.

6. Changes. Changes to the CRR12 CC&CS were managed with due foresight,
avoiding confusion among numerous stakeholders, PD, and Nations. While all
established functions of the CC&CS were maintained, the capability-based planning

approach required some alignment and updating of the existing CC&CS. Changes
were made with a view to improve the overall quality. This work has been done in a
transparent way, in close coordination with all PD and other relevant DP stakeholders.

7. The primary focus of the changes were as follows:

a. CC&CS were better mapped to and reviewed against Concepts,


Doctrine, STANAGs and other new developments relevant to DP (LL, CUR,
operational experience) and applies NATO agreed terminology and taxonomy.

b. New CC and associated CS were developed for those capabilities


implied by newly identified tasks, especially taking into account the Hybrid
Warfare, Cooperative Security, Cyber Defence, Strategic Communications, etc.
areas.

c. The overall coherence between CC&CS, Minimum Capability


Requirements (MCR) and Capability Hierarchy (CH) was improved.

d. Where applicable, the incorporation of measurable performance


characteristics into the CS was expanded.

8. Major changes by Capability Area Groups (CAG) were as follows:

a. Engagement CAG:

(1) Land: The battalion and brigades codes have been reviewed to be
split in Armoured, Heavy, Medium and Light Infantry instead of
Mechanized and Motorized. Other reorganizations have also been made
in IFS, GBAD, ISTAR and PsyOps.

(2) Maritime: Maritime principal warfare areas have been reorganized


(anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and naval mine warfare).

(3) Air: Some updates in statements of fighter bomber codes have


been implemented.

b. Command Support CAG:

(1) C2 codes for HQ aligned with component codes and MJO(+)


operation.

(2) Federated Mission Network Codes (FMN) amplified and code for
Deployable Network Element (DMNE) introduced

(3) For Maritime C2, new codes created at Task Group level.

(4) A new code for Strategic communication (STRATCOM) was


created.

9. Enabling CAG:

a. New CIED codes coming from “Out of Cycle” MCR now included.

b. Implementation of codes associated with Maritime Bulk Fuel and Basing


CP agreed.

c. Concept of some codes changed: FMWK (Framework) changed to HQ.

10. Structure of the Capability Codes. The updated list of CC&CS is provided in
Enclosure 1 and has been organised using Tiers (from one to three) of the Bi-SC
Capability Hierarchy (Reference D). This was constructed applying an agreed
mapping of each CC to a CH tier where it fits by its function. This agreed hierarchy is
comprehensively used across NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP) products like
MCR, Prioritized Shortfall Areas (PSA), and Targets while supporting the overall
consistency and transparency throughout the process.

11. Each Main Capability Area (MCA) is separated by a banner including the name,
the CH index 2 and the specific colour of that respective area from the CH. Further
decomposition of the sub-areas within the MCAs, including the CCs falling under
these specific tiers, has been developed.

12. A standard structure for describing each CC has been used to define the key
characteristics of each CC, highlighting the effects that the CC is trying to achieve.
Each CC has:

a. Capstone Capability Statement that describes the fundamental


purpose of the Capability Code (one statement per code).

b. Principal Capability Statements that describe what the CC is to be


able to do in order to achieve the desired effect(s) (primarily operationally
focused capabilities). The set of Principal CS describes the main operational
activities (tasks/effects) to which the CC contributes in a mission.

c. Enabling Capability Statements describe the characteristics that


enable the primary purpose(s) of the capability. In other words, these CS
describe the characteristics that the CC needs (to include survivability,
connectivity, sustainability, etc.) in order to accomplish the operational activities
described by the Capstone and Principal CS.

d. For each Capability Code, the following standard header is provided


containing fundamental information thereof:

(1) Capability Code: The alphanumeric descriptor which identifies


the specific Capability Code.

2
In Reference D each capability area has a distinct identifier, consisting of a capital letter as a reference
to the Main Capability Area, followed by one or two digits delineating its exact place within the Bi-SC CH
(e.g. E.2.2 – Engage: Joint Fires: Land).

(2) Capability Name: Full English language version of the Capability


Code's name or the Variant Group name.

(3) CC Cross Reference: This field identifies other code(s) which


are related to the current CC. A cross-reference (X-Ref) is to be used to
identify the dependencies or linkages between the codes.

(4) Reference Documents: List of key reference documents that


are related to this CC. These might be STANAGs, Allied Publications,
Concepts, MC guidance, etc. (only abbreviated references or STANAG
numbers are displayed). These refer to the latest edition of a document.

(5) Linkage with CRR12 CC: CRR12 Capability Codes related to


the specific CC are included here.

13. Variants. Many CC have a significant number of common statements with


other CC when they describe similar capabilities and may have only a few unique CS.
In order to avoid unnecessary repetition, the “Variants” construct was used (which was
introduced in the previous NDPP cycle). The common CS appear in the top part of
the “Variant Group” together with its description and the number of the actual CC
(“Variants”) belonging to that group. These “Variant Group Common Statements” are
meant to be part of each of the actual CC (“Variants”). The Variant Group is not a CC
in its own right. Each “Variant” is an independent CC with a unique alphanumeric
descriptor, a Capstone CS, and a set of Principal and/or Enabling CS that are not
shared by other CC in the group.

14. Service Breakdown. As an innovative tool, a set of service area 3 oriented


catalogues, at the end of the document, have been developed to guide practitioners in
the subsequent use of CC&CS in NDPP Steps 3 and 5.
