When nations work together in a coalition it is essential that each coalition member's national technology and systems are able to seamlessly unite with other another to work towards the common goal of supporting the warfighter; this is known as interoperability.
The Combined Federated Battle Laboratories Network (CFBLNet) is a secure federated global information-sharing infrastructure that is used to verify and detect inconsistencies that could hinder interoperability in existing and future capabilities in the area of Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). CFBLNet currently has 268 security cross-certified sites in 14 nations and NATO and is operated in a partnership between the Combined Communications Electronics Board (CCEB), NATO and the United States of America.
CFBLNet was established in 2001 and is currently open to 34 Mission Partners. CFBLNet grew out of the need for persistent joint multinational and cost-effective infrastructure for trial, assessment, testing, exercise and training. The capability allows for various partnerships both bilateral and multilateral with the Combined Communications Electronics Board (CCEB), Nations, and NATO. CFBLNet is open through sponsorship to additional Mission Partner Nations, international organizations, industry and academia.
