The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency connects forces, NATO and Nations, where and when required by providing interoperable Communications and Information Systems and services.
The NCI Agency is the provider of NATO-wide IT services and state-of-the-art C4ISR capabilities including cyber and missile defence. In strengthening the Alliance, the Agency applies industry best practices and provides a full life-cycle approach: from analysis and concept development, through experimentation and capability development, to operations and maintenance for both missions and exercises.
The NCI Agency is a key pillar of NATO Secretary General’s Smart Defence and Connected Forces initiatives.
