The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency is a key pillar of the NATO Secretary General’s Smart Defence and Connected Forces initiatives.
The NCI Agency connects forces, NATO and nations, where and when required by providing interoperable communications and information systems and services. It is the provider of NATO-wide IT services and state-of-the-art Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities, including cyber and missile defence.
In strengthening the Alliance, the NCI Agency applies industry best practices and provides a full life-cycle approach: from analysis and concept development, through experimentation and capability development, to operations and maintenance for both missions and exercises.
The NCI Agency is a non-profit, 100% customer-funded organisation.
