 NATO Network Enabled Capability
            (NNEC)
      A Working Definition

 NNEC is the Alliance’s cognitive and
technical ability to federate the various
components of the operational
environment, from the strategic level
(including NATO HQ) down to the
tactical levels, through a networking and
information infrastructure (NII).

       Implementation Considerations:
              National prerogative / level of ambition/ calendar/ legacy systems
              Emphasis on NRF capabilities and specific events (exercises,
              deployment)

Security and User Identification

                    Protection of
                    information might
                    be more costly for
                    what you loose
                    than for what you
                    protect …

Process & Organisation:
   the Human factor

          Working in a network
          environment means
          trust, even when
          engaged in strange
          processes

MISSION:           ??



   Hopefully not, as:
     Nations are fully aware of
     the interest
     We are not starting from
     scratch
     Solutions and
     good will do exist

  Architectural concepts, technologies and standards
  Includes timelines, key transition points
Final report and recommendations endorsed by
NATO C3 Board

                                  * NII = „National NIIs‟ + NATO NII
                                            „The Enabling
                                        Network of Networks‟




                 * NII = Networking & Information Infrastructure 15
         Think Positive!
National network capabilities are being
fielded; and NATO must build on these
NATO processes, although slow, are
robust and effectively sustained
The diversity of solutions that nations can
offer is hugely beneficial
