NATO shares SATCOM with allied partners
The NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) announced on 27 May that it has begun sharing SATCOM capacity between allies in order to strengthen a range of military activities.
The capability is provided using satellites supported by France, Italy, the UK and the US, and demonstrates how NATO membership can be used to share high-end communications infrastructure.
Whilst performing tropical weather trials in the Caribbean in Spring 2020, the German Navy’s latest frigate, FGS Baden-Wurttemberg (pictured), was provided with additional bandwidth and connectivity through the NCIA. NATO engineers in Mons, Belgium used military satellites to avoid a protracted and expensive tender for the German Navy.
Over the next 15 years, NATO plans to invest €1 billion in SATCOM with the aim of improving intelligence-gathering and navigation whilst also strengthening its capability to detect missile launches from its adversaries.
