This thesis focuses on the baseline functions that have to be executed in order to coordinate multi-national forces. This thesis is descriptive in nature, describing a multi-national architecture that is one level removed from physical hardware. The author combines the Copernicus Architecture ideology with the Cooperative Engagement structure to develop a baseline architecture (template) that can be used as a checklist for individual unit coordination at the on-scene crisis level. This then allows the tactical unit the ability to coordinate with impromptu.allies without high level state participation to ensure coordination. The author concluded that the baseline functions required by multi-national forces can be coordinated by a tactical on-scene commander, and that high-level coordination is not necessary.
