Today eight Allies:Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Spain signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a Danish-led Smart Defence project on the multinational provision of air-to-ground precision-guided munitions (PGMs). The project was originally launched by Denmark in the margins of the NATO Wales Summit through the signature of a Letter of Intent (LOI) by defence ministers from six NATO member countries (Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Norway, Portugal and Spain). Membership expanded last year with Belgium and the Netherlands joining the LOI. With the MOU signing Allies have now institutionalized their cooperation framework. This will enable the participating Allies to address all aspects of their air-to-ground precision-guided munitions (PGM) requirements through multinational cooperation. This will include the procurement and management of munitions inventories.
