One week to NATO Industry conference in Berlin

Only one week left to our NITEC18 conference - this year to discuss NATO's largest digital transformation in decades.

"NITEC18 – NATO's Digital Endeavour: Expanding the Ecosystem" offers a unique opportunity to discuss how the private sector, think-tanks, academia and the NATO Communications and Information Agency can work together to leverage new-generation information technologies to advance the Alliance into the digital future. This includes preview of bids NATO will be releasing in next 18 months, worth over 1.6 billion Euro:

  • NATO integrated air and missile defence – over 200 million EUR, including upgrades to NATO's missile defence test and integration laboratory;
  • New competition of advanced software to support NATO's troop movements and logistics – up to 100 million EUR;
  • Information and knowledge management, administration applications – over 70 million EUR;
  • Countering small unmanned aerial systems – 10 million EUR;
  • Education and training;
  • Update on competition for NATO's cyber shield;
  • C-IED technology for NATO's Response Force.

The event will also preview a new NATO architectural blueprint for deployable communication systems (including upcoming bids in this area). The briefing is highly recommended for Industry partners interested in supplying NATO with deployable communication systems.
