MDA to Support NATO’s Maritime Command and Control
MDA announced that it has signed a contract valued at approximately CA$15 million ($11.8 million) with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Communications and Information Agency (NCI). MDA will build a new system to support NATO’s maritime command and control operations under Project Triton based on a modern software architecture and technology.
This capability will be provided on both fixed and deployable systems. MDA will also provide NATO with a stand-alone command and control visualization capability that will become the standardized map and object visualization for all NATO information technology systems.
According to NATO, the MDA Triton system will support a set of services available throughout the Bi-Strategic Command Automated Information System (Bi-SC AIS) and NATO operational theaters. The system will enable NATO and NATO member nations to establish and share a common view of maritime operations, thereby improving their situational awareness and decision-making processes.
