Northrop Grumman Secures Contract MCCIS Stabilization

Thursday, October 05, 2006
Northrop Grumman Corporation has secured a new contract with the NATO C3 Agency (NC3A) to provide software support services for the Maritime Command and Control Information System (MCCIS) program. Under the new contract, Northrop Grumman will support all aspects of the MCCIS software baseline, including NATO-developed and proprietary source code. Northrop Grumman will stabilize the MCCIS software, deliver on-site support, and deliver a system that can be supported for at least the next five years. In addition, participating member nations can utilize Northrop Grumman's value-added services for individual enhancements to meet national specific requirements.

The MCCIS uses satellites, wide area networks, computerized tactical data processors and machine-readable messages and is the tool of choice for NATO's maritime component commanders. It is integrated by NATO support staff and includes commercial-off-the-shelf products together with NATO-developed applications. It is installed in every NATO maritime headquarters.

The MCCIS Stabilization program belongs to the Bi-Strategic Command Automated Information System (Bi-SC AIS) portfolio, one of the largest NATO common funded programs resulting from the Washington summit in June 1999 and re-enforced by the Prague summit in November 2002. It includes more than 100 projects funded by a dozen capability packages, implemented by several host nations and helps establish the foundation of the NATO Automated Information Services.
