Accessible beyond borders
Triton will be a centralized, web-based application allowing operational users from the NATO Command Structure and National Headquarters to access its functions from any location.
It will first be tested and evaluated during ongoing operations and exercises by Maritime Command (MARCOM) in Northwood, UK.
The tool providing imagery for Triton will be delivered as a re-usable software component, so that it may be used for mapping and user interface in other C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) systems as well.
Testing the messenger in collaboration
The NATO Centre of Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) in La Spezia, Italy, will provide basic research and prototype development support which will then be formally applied during the implementation of the project.
Meanwhile, NCI Agency, SHAPE, ACT and MARCOM users are participating in conferences, workshops and working groups to adjust the system's specification and implementation process during its test phase.
Once live, the Agency will be responsible for providing lifecycle support, with the CIS Support Unit Northwood taking on the critical role of providing primary support to the Maritime Community.
Once Triton is tested and fully procured, it will be a common platform for monitoring military maritime activities throughout the entire Alliance. Nations and Commands will be able to share their maritime operations and exercises information live, in a consolidated system, so that Triton can live up to its name and become a true Messenger of the Sea for NATO and its Partners.
