A proud history

The Agency was established on 1 July 2012 as part of a NATO reform, but its predecessors have been supporting Allied operations long before. We have a 63-year legacy to build upon, from the Cold War, the Balkans, and Afghanistan to the rapid deployment of IT to the Force Integration Units on NATO's eastern flank. We have decades of experience of working side-by-side with NATO soldiers, sailors and airmen and women.

Today

NATO is in the midst of a fundamental transformation in the way it performs its mission by more effectively exploiting information technology and reforming its business processes.

We acquire, deploy and defend communications systems for NATO's political decision-makers and Commands; we are on the frontlines against cyber-attacks, working closely with governments and industry to prevent future debilitating attacks.
