Abstract:

U.S. policy is that equipment procured for U.S. Armed Forces employed in Europe under the terms of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO should be standardized or at least interoperable with equipment of other NATO members. The NATO Air Command and Control Systems ACCS Program is intended to integrate the planning, tasking, execution, and control of all NATO tactical air operation--defensive to include Surface-to-Air Missile employment, offensive, and support. Standardization Agreement STANAG 2101 requires each ratifying nation to identify, equip, and train personnel as the liaison for communications. This segment of the overall audit of tactical command, control and communications C3 interoperability assessed DoDs commitment to and participation in NATO interoperability programs. A second segment of the overall audit, reported separately under Project No. 1RA-0048.01, evaluated the management of tactical C3 interoperability efforts within DoD and the internal controls to ensure the achievement of maximum interoperability
