[Avionics Today 11-14-2014] ThalesRaytheonSystems has completed system testing for the National Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) Air Command and Control System (ACCS) program. 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 ability to interconnect NATO and National Air Command and Control (AirC2) units across four European nations into a single integrated AirC2 system.
