ThalesRaytheon Systems announced today that it has successfully completed system testing for NATO’s Air Command and Control System program (ACCS).

The tests demonstrated the system’s ability to operate in a network configuration linking the pilot sites at Lyon Mont Verdun in France, Glons in Belgium, Uedem in Germany and Poggio Renatico in Italy.

During the tests, the system handled a daily number of military air movements several times higher than for any operations conducted up to now, proving its high level of performance and its ability to interconnect NATO and National Air Command and Control (AirC2) units across four European nations into a single integrated AirC2 system, the statement said.

“This success marks a key milestone in the adoption of the ACCS system by NATO member nations.  It will be phased in alongside existing national systems and then replace them progressively, ultimately enabling member nations to plan and conduct air operations together in a full automated manner,” said Enzo Montalti, Director AirC2 Program Office and Services, at NATO Communications and Information Agency.

“This is the last milestone before full deployment of ACCS in all European NATO nations.  Once fully deployed, the system will protect 10 million sq km. of European airspace against a range of threats by coordinating systems in member nations,” said Philippe Duhamel, CEO of Thales-Raytheon Systems.
