NATO Announces 3 Billion Investment in Cyber, Air & Missile Technology
HSD partner NATO Communication and Information (NCI) Agency announced 26 July business opportunities in cyber, air and missile defence as well as advanced software, worth 3 billion euros. This comes in parallel to decisions taken at the Warsaw Summit to strengthen the Alliance's deterrence and defence. A great example of access to capital for the HSD community.
The investments, planned between now and 2019, will further strengthen NATO's cyber and air defence, satellite communications, Response Force, as well as command and control for complex multinational operations. The first contracts have already been put out for tender, with more to come in 2016 and early 2017. These will include: a major contract for NATO satellite communications worth 1.5 billion EUR, the procurement of advanced software, and a further strengthening of NATO's air defences.
From 7-8 September 2016, over 1,500 Industry representatives will meet with NATO officials and decision-makers to discuss current trends and the next generation of NATO cyber defence, at NIAS, NATO's annual cyber conference.
