Abstract

Technical Activities in the NATO MSG have conducted a sustained effort to develop a standards-based capability for coalitions to interoperate their national command and control (C2) and simulation systems collectively. This form of multinational interoperability can have a great impact on the effectiveness of coalition military operations.  The seminar will describe the testing achieved at CWIX 2018 and the role of the C2SIM Sandbox in its development.
