      Od pristupanja NATO-u, Estonija u svoje glavne prioritete stavlja suradnju sa tom organizacijom. Uspostavili su čvrste veze sa SAD-om u pitanjima sigurnosti i vojne suradnje. Trenutno, Estonija učestvuje u NATO-ovom Timu za brze reakcije i radi u Iraku u NATO misiji za obuku iračkih trupa. Od 2009. estonci imaju jedinicu od 40 vojnika raspoređenu u Iraku a oko 3% svojih aktivnih vojnih snaga šalje u Afganistan (u suradnji sa Britancima). Irak su napustili,  ali u mirovnim misijama Un-a još učestvuju. trenutno su u misiji na Kosovu. Bili su i u misiji SFOR-a u Bosni i Hercegovini. Mornarica učestvuje i u protiv piratskim operacijama uz obalu Somalije, te Borbenim grupama Evropske Unije.

     
     

      Since 2004 Estonia has been a full member of the NATO; it had been one of its foremost priorities since the restoration of independence. The US is among the countries with which Estonia has very close cooperation in the defence and security fields. Currently Estonia takes seriously participation in the NATO Response Team and contributes in NTM-I (NATO Training Mission - Iraq). Until 2009, Estonia had 40 soldiers fighting alongside American Forces in the Iraq War and 150 soldiers, or about 3% of its total active military force, fighting alongside British Forces in Afghanistan. Estonian forces have since been withdrawn from Iraq. In both cases, the units were regularly rotated. Estonia also provides peacekeepers for international missions in both Bosnia and Kosovo within the framework of the KFOR , and also contributes to EU battlegroups and NATO Response Force rotations and the EU’s anti-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia. The Estonian military employs STANG (NATO interoperable) weapons and equipment acquired from Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, the United States and Israel.
