Factsheet: J1 Functional Area Service (J1 FAS)
18 July 2017
The European Defence Agency (EDA) developed a software tool to help the J1 (personnel) branch of EU headquarters manage the in-processing and out-processing of personnel at all phases of a CSDP operation. First demonstrated in 2012, the project showed a method of quickly mapping routine processes and enabling an application to be immediately designed and demonstrated. The demo tool called J1 FAS (J1 Functional Area Service) has since been refined to prototype status and trialled this summer within the Italian Operation Headquarters commanding the EUNAVFOR MED Operation Sophia. J1 FAS was accepted after the trial as an operational enabler within the HQ.
