What is the niag l.jpg
What is the NIAG ?

  • A high-level consultative and advisory body of senior industrialists of NATO member countries, acting under the NATO Conference of National Armaments Directors, with the aims of:

    • providing a forum for the exchange of views on industrial, technical, economic, management and other relevant aspects of research, development and production of armaments equipments within the Alliance;

    • providing industry’s advice on how to foster government-to-industry and industry-to-industry armaments co-operation within the Alliance;

    • providing assistance in exploring opportunities for international collaboration.


What niag offers l.jpg
What NIAG offers

“High level consultancy advice” -

  • Trans-Atlantic Defence Industrial Cooperation

  • The contribution of Industry to Capability Development in NATO

  • Government-Industry Partnerships – Industrial support beyond traditional boundaries

  • The Industrial Contribution to Achieving Interoperability

    Technology advice -

  • Pre-feasibility studies of TECHNOLOGIES

  • Technology Solutions for INTEROPERABILITY

  • Questions addressed by studies:

    • What do future technologies offer ?

    • What is the current state-of-the art ?

    • What is practical, achievable, cost effective ?

    • How can we make systems interoperable ?

Land Systems

  • Soldier Systems - communications interoperability

  • Urban warfare:

    – Surveillance & Reconnaissance Data Fusion

    - Monitoring and Tracking for Situation Awareness in Urban Areas

  • Ground Based Air Defence Systems

    - integration and interoperability

  • Artillery:

    • Reducing collatoral damage from artillery projectiles

    • Replacing cluster ammunition for area offence

  • Military Vehicles - auxiliary power systems requirements

Air Systems

  • Precision Airdrop Systems

    - integration in operations.

  • NATO Universal Armaments Interface

    – weapons to weapons carriers

    – Aircraft and UAV.

  • Interchangeability

    • Aircraft and UAV self protection systems – flares and chaff rockets.

  • Precision Approach and Landing

    – the future NATO standard.

  • Protecting against Directed Energy.

Maritime Systems

  • Maritime Air Operations:

    - Working with Automatic Identification Systems’

    - Interoperability and deployment of Maritime Patrol Aircraft.

  • Future Naval Fire Support;

    • “Smart” projectiles,

    • Interchangable155 calibre shells

  • Ship Design:

    • An architecture standrd for virtual ship design,

    • Potential for interoperable Modular Mission Packages


The niag perspective l.jpg
The NIAG Perspective Interoperability

  • Interoperability in the NATO context stretches over a broad canvass.

  • Achieving interoperability requires many contributors, including defence industries.

  • Basic principles:

    • Generate interface solutions for integration of systems nations’ currently own

      This also allows Industry to offer short term solutions without excessive constraints

    • Think commercial and open standards/ architectures where possible


The industrial challenge l.jpg
The Industrial Challenge Interoperability

  • Choosing the Business Model.

    • For Industry, proprietary solutions, at first sight, offer more contract control …and money.

      But –

    • Business comes from meeting the customer needs, and

    • Less costly solutions based on commercial and/or open standards which offer interoperability can have competitive advantage.


The intentions l.jpg
The Intentions …. Interoperability

  • For the Alliance:

    • Enhanced Military Capability and Interoperability as a result of Industrial interaction.

  • For Defence Industries:

    • Industrial interaction in providing Military Capability and Interoperability.
