NITECH Magazine demonstrates data's importance for NATO

The NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) has published the fifth edition of its NATO Innovation and Technology magazine, or NITECH.

This edition reveals how data is used as a strategic resource at NATO, from exploring the use of machine learning to improve NATO policies, to using oceanographic datasets to improve decision-making.

"I am proud to present the fifth edition of NITECH magazine," NCI Agency General Manager Kevin J Scheid writes in his foreword. "Each edition of this magazine is a special opportunity for us to bring together all elements of NATO to talk about innovation and technology. We are pleased to have again in this issue the participation of leaders from across NATO, and from NATO Allies working on cutting edge technology."

The magazine includes contributions from key officials from NATO, such as the Chief of Staff of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, Admiral Joachim Rühle. David van Weel, NATO's Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges, also contributes an exciting article on what data analytics can offer the Alliance, and the challenges ahead in adoption.

And the magazine features perspectives from the Nations. France's Minister of the Armed Forces, Florence Parly, highlights the importance of space for NATO and its member states, and how the new Toulouse-based NATO Space Centre of Excellence will assist with the development of this domain.
