The AGILE STANCE Campaign Plan is a multi-year programme designed to test and develop a responsive and agile UK Strategic Base. It will be managed and operated as a capability and demonstrate elements of UK Whole Force mobilisation.

The initial exercise in the campaign, AGILE LAUNCH, will be conducted in autumn 2021. This had been previously planned for Autumn 2020 but was delayed owing to the impact of COVID 19.

Future major exercises are planned for 2022 (AGILE POSTURE) and 2024 (AGILE DEFENDER) which will increase in scale and complexity.
