Norwegian Joint Headquarters

The Norwegian Joint Headquarters (Norwegian: Forsvarets operative hovedkvarter, FOH) is the Norwegian Armed Forces operational commando-center. It is located at Reitan outside Bodø, where during the Cold War NATO's Allied Command North Norway was based. The current organization was created on 1 August 2009, replacing a former joint commando center in Stavanger, which merged with the Northern Norway Command. It is led by chief-of-command, Lieutenant general, Rune Jakobsen.[1] His predecessor was Morten Haga Lunde. [2]

The Norwegian Armed Forces states that a total number of 500 people are somehow connected to the Commando Central.[3] The Commando Central cooperates with Forsvarets Logistikkorganisasjon (Flo) and Cyberforsvaret (CYFOR)[4] so that the Operational Headquarters may work as planned.
