Abstract:

The Coalition Aerial Surveillance and Reconnaissance CAESAR Project involves seven Nations in developing future Aerospace Ground Surveillance and Reconnaissance AGSR applications. In October 2003, the CAESAR project conducted a combined joint simulation exercise at the NATO Consultation, Command and Control Agency NC3A in The Hague. Various sensor system simulations, their associated ground stations and national exploitation stations were integrated in one exercise. About 80 national military operators and technical experts trained and conducted combined and joint AGSR operations. For operational and procedural interoperability, the exercise validated large portions of a Coalition Concept of Employment for AGSR. Concerning technical interoperability, the exercise proved the application of a Coalition Shared Database CSD and various Standardisation Agreements such as for Ground Moving Target Indicator GMTI and Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR. In October 2004, the CAESAR project will conduct a final Technical Interoperability Experiment. For the years 2005 to 2009, the Multi-Sensor Aerospace-Ground Joint Interoperable Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Coalition MAJIIC project is being developed to expand on the findings of CAESAR.
