Lisbon Bound: NATO Network Enabled Capability Conference 2013

This week I will have the honor of attending the 2013 NNEC Conference at the Corinthia Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal

This week I will have the honor of attending the 2013 NNEC Conference at the Corinthia Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal. The NNEC conference is an annual event which has been sponsored by HQ Supreme Allied Command Transformation (HQ SACT) since 2004. The conference is a major driver to promote NNEC within NATO, the nations, industry and other stakeholders in the civilian and military environment. This annual conference draws international attention as seen during the 2012 event held in Vienna, Austria with registration from more than 35 countries and 415 attendees. During this year's event Major General Eric Vollmecke from the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC) will be presenting information on its Geospatial Community Cloud (GCC) Demonstration.

Highlighted in a recent Government Computer News article, the project supports a concept proposed by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to demonstrate the interoperability and movement of data in an open-cloud-based demonstration. NGA will provide unclassified data that supports a scenario depicting the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. NCOIC's foundational model is based on a series of successful lab interoperability demonstrations, also based on Haiti, it conducted four times during 2010. For this effort,  NJVC is providing secure cloud brokerage services to the NCOIC using its first-to-market Cloudcuity Management Portal. NJVC's partners are Cloudcuity Management PortalThe Boeing Company and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

Hosted through the secure Cloudcuity Management Portal, NCOIC members will have access to CloudScope, an automated set of evaluation tools that:

  • Determines cloud infrastructure feasibility
  • Estimates cloud infrastructure cost and benefits
  • Conducts physical capacity for cloud  translations
  • Matches application requirements to cloud provider capabilities based on features and functionality
  • compares provider costs and quality of service

Be on the lookout for more conference news next week!
