The European Defence Agency (EDA) has signed a contract with Thales Six GTS France for the provision of secure network and communication services to the Military Planning and Conduct Capability (MPCC) and the European Union’s training missions (EUTM) in Mali.

The contract, worth up to €6 million, will run until the end of 2021. It includes several options which, if exercised, will also extend the services to the EUTMs in the Central African Republic and Somalia.

Under the contract, Thales Six GTS France will provide network and communication services for both unclassified and EU Classified Information (EUCI). Services provided include a secure WAN with LANs, work stations, printers, VoIP phones, VTC and encrypted mobile phones for EUCI communication, SMART phone communication application, cyber defence services, technical support, training, accreditation support and transportation.

The work will support the reactivity of the MPCC by speeding up the flow of information not only between the MPCC and missions, but also between missions.
