Know Before You Buy or Sell:  NCOIC Interoperability Verification Update

Learn what’s been happening with the rollout of NCOIC’s Interoperability Verification Initiative for NATO Allied Command Transformation and how your business can help shape the future by ensuring interoperability is built in to the development of the NATO Federated Mission Networking (FMN) capability.

You can join the leadership discussion in person or virtually and hear about the progress being made on this groundbreaking collaboration between NCOIC and NATO ACT – an exciting effort that can have a lasting impact on life-saving missions around the world.

Our presentations will give you an overview of the project, current status, short-term plans and how you can get involved. Among the March 20 discussion topics will be:

  • Importance and benefits of verifying interoperability before purchase
  • Overview of the IV process and its use in an operational environment
  • Multi-phase IV implementation approach
  • Why FMN and other communities of interest are the ones who determine interoperability direction
  • Identification of critical interoperability attributes
  • IV visualization and its role in rapid evaluation
  • Steps toward turning a test procedure into a production process

NCOIC members and guests are invited to join a luncheon at 12:30 p.m. The afternoon session begins at 1:30 p.m. (ET) with a meeting of the NCOIC Advisory Council; its members are senior government leaders and strategists with expertise in global interoperability.  This will be followed by presentations and discussions on interoperability verification. The event will end with a networking reception and a continuing exchange of ideas by the leaders from both public and private sectors.

Register now so you won’t miss this opportunity to support NATO and the future of interoperability.
