Verifying Interoperability for NATO Federated Mission Networking

September 13, 2017

9-10 a.m. (ET)
NEW -- Special Virtual Session
One-hour briefing on NCOIC membership and a short overview of the IV framework, its use in the NATO operational test environment and how to become involved in the project.

2 p.m. (ET)
Virtual and In-Person Meeting at Deloitte Headquarters
1919 N. Lynn Street - Arlington, Virginia


NCOIC’s next interoperability discussion will spotlight the new Interoperability Verification Initiative and how it will be developed in conjunction with NATO Allied Command Transformation to help ensure interoperability in the development of the NATO Federation Mission Networking (FMN) capability.

The Interoperability Verification Initiative (IVI) represents an exciting collaboration between NCOIC and NATO. The NCOIC team is currently focused on the first step in this project – the framework to be used for examining and confirming interoperability in the Coalition Interoperability Assessment & Validation Test Environment.

Among the September 13 discussion topics will be:
 - The need for interoperability testing
 - Benefits to nations, vendors, procurement officers and integrators
 - Multi-phase IV implementation approach
 - How the IV process works
 - FMN requirements and attributes for verification
 - Possible test cases, scenarios and templates

You’ll also hear about the re-vamped NCOIC membership levels – and a new category that will enable member-companies to take part in the development and testing of the IV framework.

We will begin with a virtual meeting at 9 a.m. (ET) that will focus on NCOIC membership and the benefits of participating in the development of the IV framework. The discussion session on FMN interoperability verification takes place at 2 p.m. (ET). The day will end with a networking reception and a continuing exchange of ideas by the leaders from both the public and private sectors.

REGISTER NOW - Don’t miss this opportunity to get in at the beginning of a most exciting era for realizing the vision of an interoperable world!
