INVOLVEMENT IN NATO PROJECTS AND PRACTICAL USE OF MIL SISTEMIKA SOFTWARE PRODUCTS
Mil Sistemika has a lot of experience with NATO. In past years it was a member in the NATO MIP (Multilateral Interoperability Programme) workgroup that defines the tactical data exchange protocol on the C4I (Command Control Communications Computers and Intelligence) level. We also regularly support the Slovenian MoD at military exercises such as CE (Combined Endeavour) where we have in 2012 and 2013 successfully provided interoperability between the national system and the NATO system as well as other national systems. At CE 2013 we have provided the NFFI (NATO Friendly Force Information) bridge capability for all the nations in our mission group composed of US, Slovenia, Macedonia, Turkey, Kirgizstan, Poland, Ukraine, and others. We also supported the Slovenian MoD at the MIP exercise / testing in Greding 2008, 2009. Based on this experience we understand that NATO system is complex and tied with other NATO systems. Therefore we can offer special domain services for this project. We believe our experience and services can decrease certain risks in this project such as lack of domain knowledge.
Most of MIL Sistemika products are currently in use with the Slovenian armed forces, and are being evaluated by Serbian, Bulgarian and Macedonian (FYRM) forces.
