NATO Communications and Information Agency

The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency is a key pillar of the NATO Secretary General’s Smart Defence and Connected Forces initiatives.

The NCI Agency connects forces, NATO and nations, where and when required by providing interoperable communications and information systems and services. It is the provider of NATO-wide IT services and state-of-the-art Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities, including cyber and missile defence.

In strengthening the Alliance, the NCI Agency applies industry best practices and provides a full life-cycle approach: from analysis and concept development, through experimentation and capability development, to operations and maintenance for both missions and exercises.

The NCI Agency has over 30 locations in Europe, North America and South-East Asia in support of its customers and NATO operations. The headquarters are in Brussels and two main sites are located in The Hague and Mons (Belgium).

NATO in The Hague

The NCI Agency’s presence in The Hague dates back to 1955 as the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) Air Defence Technical Centre. This evolved into the NATO C3 Agency in 1996, which on 1 July 2012 merged with four other NATO organisations into the newly formed NCI Agency. The NCI Agency is a non-profit, 100% customer-funded organisation.
