 	                                        Director	(Information	Superiority)

                                          I am delighted to welcome you to Dstl Porton Down and to
                                          the UK Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration. This
                                          is the UK’s 16th successive year and is an important activity
                                          in the development of coalition interoperability and Network
                                          Enabled Capability (NEC). The event is focused on potential
                                          solutions to fill capability gaps that have been highlighted by
                                          current operations. It also provides a realistic environment to
                                          de-risk existing programmes. Despite the current economic
                                          and programme pressures, the event is well supported by both
                                          Industry and MoD. We need to make the best of the opportunity
                                          and engagement.

                                          This year, we are hosting 22 trials in the UK. The level of
                                          Coalition interoperability has been expanded also, with 12 UK
                                          trials directly interacting with those of the US, NATO, French
                                          and other Coalition forces. CWID has the potential to examine
                                          interoperability issues from the tactical to strategic level of
 command, and the trials this year demonstrate capabilities across this breadth of activity. We have also
 achieved a long-held aim by federating CWID, with remote participation by the Command & Control Battle
 Lab at Shrivenham, the Air Warfare Centre at RAF Waddington and the General Dynamics EDGE facility at
 Newbridge in Wales.

 UK CWID is supported by a constructive partnership between MoD and Industry and I would like to thank
 all of those staff of both communities who have worked hard to make it successful. This is our second
 year of demonstrating at Dstl Porton Down, supported by the Joint Command and Battle Management
 Laboratory at Dstl Portsdown West. QinetiQ is again providing technical and engineering support, and
 personnel from across MoD’s Capability areas, Defence Equipment and Support, the Defence Intelligence
 Staff, Permanent Joint Headquarters and the 3 Services have provided support throughout the year.

 UK remains fully committed to the aims of CWID (to enhance coalition interoperability and information
 sharing network enabled solutions), but having taken soundings within Industry and MoD, we have
 decided that future events need to be re-shaped. With an eye to the resource burden on participants,
 and the demands of current operations, we have decided not to build our own site as part of CWID 11.
 Rather, we will continue to facilitate the submission of UK trials to the US and NATO events, either from
 our equipment programmes for de-risking or from Industry to address capability gaps. We also hope that
 the lessons from federation at this year’s CWID will demonstrate the possibility for future participation
 being conducted remotely from existing facilities, MoD or Industry, within the UK. This will, I am sure, be
 a journey of discovery – and we will need to continue to work closely together to ensure that we remain
 focused on our starting aim – to deliver NEC in Defence.

 Enjoy your visit.

                                                                                        Return to contents page

 Overview. CWID is the Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (Capability)’s annual technology demonstration
 and field trial to identify and deliver future military capabilities made possible by Networked Enabled
 Capability (NEC). Funded through the Equipment Programme by Head of Command Control and
 Information Infrastructure Capability, it supports a close working relationship between the MoD and
 industry. CWID provides a realistic national, joint and coalition environment that sees the UK working
 with the United States, Canada, New Zealand and NATO partners. The Demonstration is used to identify
 capability gap solutions, de-risk Equipment Programme projects, identify innovative opportunities and
 inform future research and development projects and initiatives.

 Aim. UK CWID aims to enhance the operational effectiveness and interoperability of UK Forces on
 coalition operations through improved use of network enabled capabilities.

 Concept. UK CWID is concentrating on addressing issues raised on current operations and is using an
 Afghanistan 2012 scenario in which to focus on 6 key areas of interest:

 •   Deliver enabled network capabilities.
 •   Provide command, inform and battlespace management capabilities.
 •   Provide logistic NEC capabilities.
 •   Provide intelligence, surveillance, targeting, acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities.
 •   Provide enhanced sub-unit situational awareness.
 •   Evolve CWID Federated model.

 Scenario. The CWID scenario has been developed in conjunction with the United States and this year the
 CWID Coalition has again followed the UK example by increasing the Demonstration’s operational focus.
 The US-led Coalition is using an Afghanistan scenario and NATO is using the Horn of Africa. In particular,
 UK CWID is using the turbine supply to Kajaki dam (Op OQAB TSUKA) as the central theme for the scenario,
 as this provides a realistic framework for events through which operational benefits can be demonstrated.
 We have been careful to develop scenario events that enable interaction with Coalition partners in order
 to examine key interoperability issues, specifically between the UK and US.

Realism. The UK supplies a realistic environment
to host trials. This year’s focus on Afghanistan
2012 continues to provide a relevant operational
focus. Definition of network standards by
the Systems Engineering and Interoperability
Group has ensured that the core infrastructure
is representative of that which current planned
programmes are expected to deliver, while
assistance from the Front Line Commands
(FLCs), PJHQ, ISS, and LWC delivers experienced
personnel to operate the systems demonstrated.
In addition, operational data, information and
imagery have been provided by agencies such as
ICG and JARIC. UK CWID also utilises feeds from
other sources and Coalition nations.

                                                          Delivery. UK CWID is delivered by a Core Team
                                                          directly managed by a small military staff from the
                                                          CCII Capability Branch in MoD and supported by
                                                          the SEIG, from DE&S, who are providing project
                                                          management and commercial support. The
                                                          wider Core Team includes contractors, engineers,
                                                          scientists, liaison officers from FLCs and other MOD
                                                          departments as well as advisors from industry.
                                                          UK CWID is an 18 month programme from the
                                                          definition of objectives through planning to
                                                          execution. As an event UK CWID only succeeds
                                                          with the close involvement and cooperation of
                                                          sponsors, operators and industry.

Investment	and	Financial	Leverage. Each year UK CWID requires significant investment, in terms of
finance, resource and time. It is supported by up to 80 military augmentees and 150 industry personnel.

Benefits	and	Exploitation. CWID directly
benefits industry and the MOD by:

• Providing potential solutions for capability
• Reducing risk within current EP projects.
• Supporting innovation.

CWID also provides indirect benefits
including partnership development and user
opportunities (such as training and policy
assessment) as well as financial and technical
leverage. This year, UK CWID is building on
the lessons learnt from 2009 in regards of assessment and benefits analysis. During the planning phase,
demonstrations, in conjunction with sponsors and exploitation owners, have produced expected benefits
from CWID participation. Throughout the execution period trials will be subject to a full assessment, based
on their expected benefits, as well as a Technical and System Readiness Level review. In addition, this year
trials will be measured against generic UK MoD NEC Compliance principles. On conclusion of the trial,
exploitation owners are responsible for taking forward the results derived from CWID and ensuring that this
data is used to inform relevant programmes.

Federated	UK	CWID
CWID	enabled	by	CFBLNet


 The Combined Federated Battle Laboratory Network (CFBLNet) is a year-round network for Research,
 Development, Trials and Assessments (RDT&A). It utilizes a global Wide Area Network (WAN) to set-up
 bi-lateral or multi-lateral enclaves as the vehicle to conduct initiatives from unclassified up to a Combined
 Secret Releasable.

 CFBLNet federates existing USA, Combined Communications-Electronics Board (CCEB), NATO and National
 laboratories and test beds with each nation/organization providing its own infrastructure for connecting
 government and defence sites/assets to CFBLNet. In the UK this is JMNIAN.

 The CFBLNet consists of distributed network architecture of Combined, Joint, and Service infrastructure
 components (networks, database servers, application servers, client workstations, etc.). The level and type of
 network services deployed within each enclave is the minimum required to support the initiative.

 The size of the initiative can be as small as a local single country test, to very large consisting of multiple
 events, trials, or initiatives, such as, Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID) and Empire

 The combination of CFBLNet and connected National facilities can be configured to provide a test,
 experimentation, training and development test bed for developing & de-risking networks, infrastructure
 and applications prior to operational acceptance. Currently these facilities are being used to model the
 Afghanistan Mission Network (AMN) for Tactics Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) and interoperability


What is Federated UK CWID?
• Use of existing remote facilities as capability contributors to the exercise network

What is a Federated UK CWID10 aiming to achieve?
• Investigate the model for future events
• Increase Collaboration across MoD and Industry extant facilities
• Demonstrate the Return on Investment for the network connection of facilities
• Identify where trade-offs exist in the Centralised vs Distributed operating model

So what are the potential benefits and advantages to this federated system?
• Centralised planning/ de-centralised execution
• Re-use of extant equipment from MoD and Industry sites
• Mix of Reference, experimentation and research funded Infrastructure
• Higher utilisation of equipment
• Shared use of scarce technical resources

Balanced by requirements for:
• Distributed Engineering Support
• Distributed Security and Assurance
• Distributed Scenario support and co-ordination
• Distributed Assessment activities

• GD UK aims to re-use their existing CIBM and ESII test beds to participate in CWID10, thus increasing
  MoD and Industry return on investment.
• C2BL’s connection to CWID will allow trials to be assessed and evaluated by SMEs with current
  knowledge of Operational techniques and applications.
• The Deployable Air Operations Centre (DAOC) at the AWC will provide specific Air Operations expertise
  and assist with Network Enabled Air Operations (NEAO).

Scenario	-	CWID	Scenario	Overview	
The CWID scenario events and
warfighter roles are developed to meet
trial requirements and ensure that the
execution is as realistic as possible.
Building on CWID09, this year’s scenario
has been developed to provide further
operational and situational relevance
with the whole of the Coalition exercising
Afghanistan and NATO conducting trials
based on a Horn of Africa scenario.
The UK scenario has been designed to
directly support trials. The scenario,
Task Organisation (TaskOrg) and Order
of Battle (ORBAT) are based around Op
HERRICK. In line with UK CWID’s aim,
the UK scenario has also been designed
to include events to test Coalition

                                                                     CWID	UK	Scenario	Outline
                                                                     The UK CWID scenario is using the supply
                                                                     of turbine equipment between Kandahar
                                                                     and Kajaki (Op OQAB TSUKA) as the
                                                                     central theme for this year’s events. This
                                                                     operation provides an opportunity to
                                                                     demonstrate the capabilities of the trials
                                                                     using recent, relevant and realistic actions.
                                                                     Additionally, it enables some comparison
                                                                     to be made between current capabilities
                                                                     and potential operational benefits from
                                                                     the capabilities demonstrated.

The use of this operational focus also supports the CWID aim and provides realism by demonstrating:

•   Command and Control at all levels
•   Cross Coalition Interoperability
•   Battlespace Management
•   Situational Awareness
•   Intelligence Resource Management & Resource Tasking
•   Air / Land Mission Planning and Coordination
•   Intelligence and Information Management and Exploitation
•   ISTAR Operations Planning and Execution
•   Provision of Joint Geospatial Intelligence and Information Services
•   Battlespace Spectrum Management
•   Campaign Planning

Scenario	Coordination

Events have been developed around the scenario’s central theme in order to test the wide range of
capabilities demonstrated by trials. Individual events are produced to enable assessment of individual trials
and selected events have also been developed to test National and Coalition interoperability between UK
and Coalition trials. The events are driven by the ‘warfighters’ provided from the Front Line Commands, who
operate as role-players within the scenario. The use of Warfighters adds additional value to the planned
events through their own operational experiences.

A daily Events Matrix that is supported by an array of operational documentation, information, imagery and
intelligence assessments is produced to coordinate trial activities. The Events Matrix is orchestrated through
warfighter scripts called Master Scenario Events Lists (MSELs) produced by the trials and Core Team for each
warfighter. The overall events coordination is controlled and managed by a team led by the Scenario Officer.

In addition to the scheduled events, innovation and ‘free play’ are encouraged by both the warfighters and
trials to provide some value-added testing, allowing warfighters and assessors to further examine trial

All events have been written to provide coherency and consistency with the central theme.

UK	Task	Organisation

UK CWID will demonstrate capability using a representative TaskOrg from Op HERRICK. The ORBAT has
been simplified to ensure that UK CWID is manageable and affordable. Technical and procedural constraints
mean that in some cases it is not possible for certain demonstrations to operate effectively alongside each
other in the same HQ. Therefore it has been necessary to adjust the ORBAT in certain areas to support the
demonstration of a range of tactical capabilities. Representations of Reganal Command (South) (RC(S)),
Task Force Helmand (TFH), ISAF, PJHQ and a UK ACC are demonstrated providing opportunities to show
interoperability across a variety of environments and command structures in support of the trials.

Based on our success last year, USEUCOM and UK                 interoperability, shared situational awareness and
CWID re-aligned to build a global coalition network            collaborative planning
over which cutting-edge technologies interact to
support the operational community.
Collectively, we built a framework to aid the
transformation of our military capabilities in an
effort to make our forces more flexible, agile, and
efficient, which in turn improves our ability to
respond to any crisis.

Putting the technology aside, CWID helps our
military communities work more effectively by
providing a place outside of our normal operating
networks to test new technology and ideas for
sharing information. This year, we examined a range
of technologies enhancing our ability to share and
improve our situational awareness, collaboration,
decision-making and command and control                        Title - Cross Domain Chat

in interoperability for the Alliance. Allied Command Transformation (ACT) provides direction and
management to the programme, while NATO Nations, Agencies, and Partner Nations sponsor
interoperability trials with specific objectives defined by National Leads and ACT. These objectives are
designed to support NATO operations, both present and future.

CWIX	2010	Intent

The CWIX programme focuses on verifying and improving the status of interoperability of NATO and
national C4ISR systems, with particular emphasis on those that would be deployed within an Article Five
Response; current operations, such as ISAF, KFOR or Active Endeavour; or a NATO Response Force. In
addition to bilateral technical testing, CWIX provides a venue to conduct technical testing of fielded,
developmental and experimental systems in the context of a coalition scenario. The event runs concurrent
and shares elements with the USA and UK CWID annual events.

Ensuring a secure operational network is critical to delivering effective
NEC. The CWID network is certified by the DSSA and provides a secure
network solution, representative of that required to deliver NEC. A
multi-layer security model has been developed to protect the network
and the data contained throughout the network. A dedicated team
of experts from across the MoD and industry has been created to
protect, control and monitor the network.

This MoD team is lead by SEIG as Senior Information Risk Owners
(SIRO), supported by 215 MI Section, Dstl and QinetiQ; this support is
augmented by a variety of partners from across industry.

The network security is considered throughout the planning
process until trials arrive at the demonstration. On arrival at the
demonstration all trials are integrated into the network common
security model to ensure maximum protection to the network. Key
areas that ensure this delivery include:

• Joint Engineering & Security Team in the CWID Network
  Management Centre – equivalent to a Joint NetCen on operations

• A layered network Intrusion Detection System utilising technologies
  and solutions from Dstl, Symantec and industry partners

• Delivering a layered anti-virus solution

• Control of all data exchanges between security domains through
  the use of filter and guard technologies

• Continual threat monitoring and analysis for any threats to the

Key technologies used to deliver CWID Network Security are:

•   Security Guards
•   Filters and Boundary Protection Devices
•   Data Diodes
•   Enterprise Deployed Clampdowns
•   Intrusion Detection Systems
•   Data Encryption
•   Anti-virus Protection Software
•   Threat Analysis and Correlation Software

Capability	Description

Until now, virtual collaboration meant compromise. Sharing complex data, drawings and concepts requires
lackluster application sharing and conference calls or expensive telepresence solutions that are not
commonplace or are difficult to book. Yet the technologies of application sharing and video conferencing
together offer powerful, economical ways to share information and bring distant collaborators together.

Comprehensive	Features

The modular architecture of HP SkyRoom, combined with industry-standard components, provides a
comprehensive set of features not found in any other collaboration technology in its price range.

Personal collaboration solutions can enrich current virtual communication experiences, eliminate travel
costs, improve productivity but also enable environmental sustainability practices. Many organizations also
require that these solutions be high quality, affordable, useable, efficient and reliable.

HP SkyRoom represents the kind of innovation that is at the heart of HP—making the collaboration
experience easy for many customers worldwide. The technology incorporated into HP SkyRoom lays the
groundwork for true collaboration across borders and disciplines, making it effortless and cost-effective
to communicate ideas and share information in a format that is as good as, if not better than, face-to-face
meetings. Designed with the environment in mind, HP SkyRoom gives users back valuable time they can use
to focus on strategic parts of the business rather than worrying about how to collaborate more efficiently.

      simulations of munitions and their on-board sensors. This provides
      the ability to loiter and re-task and to engage targets in complex and
      demanding environments. Furthermore, the deployment allows the
      demonstration of Operator-in-the-Loop capability to engage fleeting,
      mobile targets against a cluttered population background and
      provides the ability to assess the decision and action cycle for End to
      End targeting.

      This trial also explores interoperability requirements for future
      evolutions of Fire Shadow. This is achieved by investigating the
      additional services that could be provided by the Weapon System and
      exploited for the benefit of higher command. One example of this is
      the wider utility of sensor image information.

      The Interoperability Box is a key component of the Security Guard that
      exists between the UK and Coalition domains. The Gateway utilises XML
      to enable validation of the Link 16 data.

      In addition to the Interoperability Box and in order to assist with the
      process of integration and monitoring the data flow, MBDA is deploying its
      NEC Enterprise (formerly the NEC Analyser). This provides a 3D visualisation
      of the Link 16 picture and detailed analysis of traffic throughput.

      NEC Enterprise has been used on a number of major programmes and
      has become a valuable asset during integration and execution and for
      after action analysis.

  XMPP Guard.

The trial demonstrates the use of a Client/Server architecture that
supports the Extended Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) that
is widely recognised within Defence.

The user interface is a Windows client application that is intuitive and
easy to use. It is based on a Windows look and feel and should be
familiar to anyone who has previously used an IM solution.

Communication is simple, secure and fast and can be demonstrated
for use in many scenarios and at all levels of security and rank.

SAFE IM for XMPP is currently in research and development, and CWID
demonstrations and assessments are considered a key activity within
the Product evaluation phase of the XMPP client to help to determine
the TRL of the product for wider deployment.

within the UK CWID environment and to extend the scope of testing
to evaluate our capability, interoperating with similar NATO and US

      operations where there is a need to collaborate and share
      information with other partners. It will ensure that the right
      information is released to the right recipients in a timely manner.
      For example it would be possible to ensure that the Red Cross in
      Afghanistan is provided with the relevant humanitarian information
      to support the local populace without accidentally releasing classified
      information to them, which could compromise an operation.

trial shows that it is possible to provide secure interoperability of
email through the ability to exchange certificates between Defence
Agencies (MoD etc.) and third party contractors.

This trial is a de-risking exercise for the deployment of a fully
functional EAL4 evaluated email Guard based on the secure TSCP
standard. This could be used by any organisation to securely exchange
protectively marked emails with other collaboration partners.

      CWID10 trial now has increased functionality provided within a single
      device to include XMPP in addition to SMTP/X.400 and HTTP traffic.

      The trial will look at aspects such as controlling access to information,
      combining clearance checking with the redaction and/or removal
      of information above the clearance of the individual or application,
      translation of Security policies across the security boundary and the
      use of XML to provide granular control over these activities

      to provide cost efficient capability and securely share information in a
      collaborative NEC environment.

Various forms of data are increasingly being stored in Coalition Shared
Dataservers (CSD). When a new product is stored on a CSD, metadata
from that product is automatically synchronised with all CSDs on
the network. Users can then search for data, and view associated
metadata for all entries matching the users search criteria. A major
benefit of the CSD is that it can remove the need for the broadcast of
information, thereby enabling better use of bandwidth.                       Supported	Data	Types

The	ECTOCRYP	Black	Secure	Voice	Gateway

ECTOCRYP Black is a 120 channel, small form factor voice gateway
that can support SCIP (FNBDT) calls. The gateway will also allow
for legacy terminal connections. The Future Narrowband Digital
Terminal (FNBDT) protocol suite allows end-to-end encryption of
voice and data services over minimal bandwidth links. NATO took the
FNBDT protocol and further developed it to provide interoperability

federation and has links to the Publish and Subscribe System (PASS)
and Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS). PASS
enables overlays to be shared between systems and AFATDS enables
Fires coordination.

In support of ICC there is a NIRIS (server) that provides picture
information and is the primary node for the UK. It also connects
direct to a NATO server to receive additional, e.g. NFFI, information.
The NIRIS picture information is also consumed by the openJOP

      Enhanced Space Based Infrared Systems (SBIRS) Highly Elliptical
      Orbit (HEO) IR data is available and relevant for tactical use in a         •   Enhance Situational
      theater’s operational environment. From overhead observation and                Awareness
      target determination to battle damage assessment and post-mission
      monitoring, the IR imagery can greatly enhance target assessment            •   Improve Decision Making
      at all theater-level operations. This same IR data also improves                Process
      operational success for Personnel Recovery and all rapid-response
      missions.                                                                   •   Appropriate level command
      As in last year’s US CWID, simulated relevant Overhead Persistent
      Infrared (OPIR) and Terrestrial Based Radar (TBR) data is collected at a    •   Increase Defensive Options
      network centric location. This data is processed to produce improved
      theatre ballistic missile (TBM) information applied to a released           •   Civilian Response
      missile track message. Resource optimization will allow forward based
      radars to acquire targets earlier in the track and allow a more effective
      allocation of interceptor assets. Improved National Security against
      asymmetric threats can be a direct result of this trial.

      In addition to being provided to the CWID COP for proof of
      interoperability and relevancy amongst the other trials, the fused
      missile tracks and IR data will be routed to affected tactical edge
      warfighters and Army Battle Command Systems (ABCS). Tailored
      missile event warnings and IR imagery data made available the
      disparate warfighter will facilitate greater situation awareness and
      assist lower-level command decisions such as executing quick-
      response threat elimination missions.

Improvement to the Decision-Making Process is achieved by                    Detect track and cue missile
