NATO turns to GMV technology for its new intelligence systems
The technology multinational GMV has been awarded a contract by the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) to develop the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance resource storage and dissemination system. The project, called Coalition Shared Data (CSD) Services, will be implemented in two phases: an interim system provided by NATO, followed by an enduring solution under this GMV contract.
This project upgrades the results of NATO’s MAJIIC2 program (Multi-Intelligence All-Source Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Interoperability Coalition) to an operational state. MAJIIC2 sets out to provide the necessary tools for maximizing the use and interchange of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) information. GMV is participating in the project with funding from the Directorate General of Armaments and Material (DGAM) of Spain’s MoD.
CSD Enduring Solution will be integrated into NATO’s system infrastructure. It targets the specification, design, development, testing, deployment and support of CSD capacity based on the MAJIIC2 program (subsequently to be standardized in STANAG 4559 Edition 4). Under this project GMV has developed a series of systems for compiling information from a host of different sources in different formats (video clips, imagery, radar, etc.), providing intelligence analysts with the necessary tools for exchanging ISR information and workflows to enable interaction in all JISR phases.
This project falls under GMV’s ongoing, decade-long work on JISR systems. The Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Capability (JISR) initiative synchronizes and integrates the planning and operation of all information-obtaining capacities with operation and processing capacities, plus dissemination of the resulting information to the addressee in due form and time. All this as direct support of present and future operations.
