Land Force Integration, ISR Operations and Procurement: Insights from the Spanish Joint Special Operations Command

Special Operations Forces are highly effective on their own, but integrating them into wider conventional land force operations, particularly in the context of ISR and battle management, remains a challenge.

A few years ago, Spain approved the creation of the Spanish Joint Special Operations Command to respond to the need to enhance interoperability among the different Special Operations Forces.

Ahead of the inaugural Land ISR &C2 Battle Management conference, Defence IQ had the privilege to talk to Major General Jaime Iñiguez Andrade, Commander of Spanish Joint Special Operations Command and speaker at the event. In this exclusive interview, he gives us an expert insight into the role of the newly formed Joint Special Operations Command and their role in creating a joint doctrine for all Special Operations Forces, as well as the main challenges they face in regards to C2ISR.
