ADOBE Systems has announced NATO‘s E-3A department will use its Adobe Flex software and Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES for its new Mission Support System.

The system will help improve NATO’s operational readiness by reducing the time to prepare for missions and will improve the delivery of information to flight crew members, Adobe says.

Adobe Flex is an open source development framework for fast end-to-end development of rich internet applications that run identically on all major browsers and operating systems.

Using Adobe LiveCycles Data Services applications will be developed that will automatically synchronise data between the client and server, provide real-time data push and publish/subscribe messaging, and enable collaborative and occasionally disconnected applications.

NATO crew will be able to put together mission briefs from over 80 different data sources, including information such as details about the region and routes to take refuge in case of an emergency.
