SCT Technology has launched the CMA InS: Interoperability Suite, which is a type of software designed to allow Nato nations and allies to meet interoperability mission goals.
By deploying CMA InS: Interoperability Suite, the countries can cost-effectively comply with the Nato asset tracking commitments.
In addition, CMA InS will help future-proof the countries against any changes to interoperability standards.
Nato Force Goal 4052 and associated ‘Asset Tracking Standardisation Agreements’ (STANAGs) commit member nations to certain capabilities so that commanders know the identity, status, quantity, and location of specified assets.
SCT Technology’s CMA InS offers full AAP-11D (STANAG 2185 Edition 4), interoperability message generation, receipt and translation capability for interfacing legacy logistic information systems either to the Nato Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) Routing Hub (NRH) or partner countries.
Having received inbound messages from the NRH or partner nations, the CMA InS translates 2185 Edition 3 and TIP communications in order to relay feedback to the legacy system of record.
If the Nato mandated field is not already enabled by existing legacy system, the interoperability suite generates relevant serial shipping container codes (SSCC).
CMA InS is offered as a perpetual software licence with industry-standard annual support and maintenance fees, which provide helpdesk services, software patches and updates when required.
A typical CMA InS deployment includes a services engagement that would help define and develop interfaces to the country’s legacy information system.
It also includes providing support to arrange, configure and test a national connection to the CMA-powered Nato NSPA Routing Hub, in addition to the installation and user-acceptance testing of CMA InS before being delivered.
