NIMCIS 4.0 upgrade for the Netherlands

16th September 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics UK will continue to roll out the New Integrated Marines Communications and Information System (NIMCIS) 4.0 programme for the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, the company announced on 13 September.

The NIMCIS 4.0 programme will deliver improvements to user experience, training and hardware upgrades, and will equip the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps with the Bowman 5.6 system, which is currently being rolled out to the UK armed forces. 

The NIMCIS tactical communications equipment will receive a series of enhancements and upgrades, including the roll-out of new data terminals and an updated version of the battle management system. 

Major of Marines Menno van der Schaaf, representing the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, said: ‘It is key for us to continuously improve and develop in order to stay in line with the latest technologies and that is what NIMCIS 4.0 will enable.  We’ll be able to act faster and fully integrate with our colleagues in the United Kingdom, whilst evolving our current system and providing an easy-to-use system.’

General Dynamics UK has provided the NIMCIS system to Royal Netherland Marine Corps for the past 14 years.  The system provides a secure voice and data communications infrastructure capable of supporting a range of network-enabled C4I systems.
