British firm to modernise NATO secure communication systems

7

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has been awarded a contract by the NATO Communications and Information Agency for upgrades to the NATO Deployable Air Command and Control Component’s communications systems.

The upgrades will modernise the way in which NATO’s transportable shelters transmit, relay and receive mission data from allied nations by replacing the current communications suite with a future-proof voice over internet protocol-based communication system.

“This vital equipment will help to ensure that the DACCC can continue to support NATO, both within its European territory and on deployment in the planning, tasking and execution of all air command and control operations.”

MADG Land Systems Managing Director Ray Cutting explained:

“We’re proud that the NCI Agency have trusted us to deliver this very important upgrade, building on our long-standing relationship with NATO. NATO’s commands are on the front line against physical and cyber-attacks, so we wanted to ensure they could stand ready for critical situations with modernised equipment and secure communication systems. We have developed this solution to ensure that crucial data and information can be securely transmitted between allies in a quicker, safer and more cost effective way, a great example of the work that we do at Marshall to help protect people in critical situations.”

The installation and testing of the new equipment will start in the coming months, say the firm.

Need to be able to develop our own kit & software in the UK. Enhancing home grown chip production facilities would be beneficial to the economy as well as our security

“The head of GCHQ has warned that the technology threat posed by Russia is like finding a vulnerability on your phone – a risk but one that can probably be mitigated – whereas China has the potential to control the “global operating system”.
