Welcome to the HQ NRDC-ESP website, one of the Alliance’s Rapid Deployable Corps Headquarters and the only one high profile NATO organization based in Spain.

HQ NRDC-ESP is the international part of the Spanish High Readiness Land Military Staff HQ (CGTAD), and it represents the Spain’s commitment to NATO. With Spain as framework nation, there are currently nine contributing nations (France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Turkey, United States and Spain). The multinational environment provided by its almost four hundred military personnel from the different nations is the key factor that enables this Headquarters to conduct successfully all the assigned missions as tasks.

It’s our intention through this website that you get to know our history, organization, mission, facilities and main activities.
