The CAF’s Training Support to Peace Operations (TSPO) is the provision of training support to the UN’s Engagement Platoon initiative. The Canadian contingent is responsible for developing and piloting the Engagement Platoon Pilot Course; the mission of the platoon is to enhance the situational awareness of a UN infantry battalion by mapping the human terrain of the area of operations in order to identify vulnerable areas and at-risk populations.
