Northwood Headquarters is the centre of British military power, where the political executive in London directs operations – including any nuclear strikes from Britain’s Trident submarines. Though not a core part of the unconventional/cyber-operations system, it will be involved in operations planning and co-ordination. The site also co-ordinates with US/NATO forces.
