From the Commander's Desk
Effective 1 July 2012, the NATO Programming Centre (NPC) is part of the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) established to consolidate and provide the capability development and support for NATO’s Communications and Information Systems in an efficient and effective manner.
Within this new agency, NPC continues to provide system and advisory support for the NATO Air Command and Control (C2) assets entrusted to us. On the one hand these are the continued support for the maintenance of the Legacy and Interim Air C2 Systems in service in NATO and the Nations. On the other hand we provide expertise and manpower in support of the procurement of ACCS, and prepare for the system support for ACCS, acknowledging that the first element, the Voice Communications Equipment at Nieuw Milligen (NLD), is in service and supported.
As you are reading the information provided on this website, you will find that the NPC has gained success in many areas. I am very confident that the NPC will continue to provide the required support to the Air C2 community based on the dedication and professional skills of our military and civilian staff. I am proud to lead this unique NATO organization, and invite you to discover more about the NPC and the products we support throughout the following pages.
