Today I attended a very cool event; a demonstration at Enköping of a real-time experiment of information sharing between NATO and the Swedish civil and military actors. The Swedish actors could get a operational picture based on data from a NATO AWACS when their own radar system wasn’t good enough. That’s a splendid example of interoperability based on SOA and lots of standards.

The demo got a little too real, since the place where all hostile activities and accidents took place was in Gothenburg, very close to where my children live. So when I saw the live picture (slightly simulated) of a tram slamming into a truck with poisonous gas just a hundred meters from their school, I almost got too scared…

One thought on “NATO-NEC Demo

    I’m glad you enjoyed the demonstration i Enköping. Hopefully it will go down as an important landmark regarding the poissibilities of interopability, in the filed of information sharing, that a Service Oriented concept can give us. Regardless if it conserns military or civilan actors.
