25 June 2019

Defence ministers from Germany and the Netherlands will sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on 26 June to pursue the Tactical Edge Networking (TEN) programme, defence officials have disclosed to Jane's.

The MOU, which is expected to be signed on the fringes of the 26-27 June at the NATO defence ministers meeting in Brussels, marks the next step in the development of the multinational command, control, and communications (C3) programme that binds together the Bundeswehr's digitisation of land based operations (D-LBO) and the Dutch Ministry of Defence's (MoD's) Foxtrot efforts.

The MOU will follow the signature of a letter of intent agreed by the German and Dutch ministries of defence on 17 May 2018, with the aim of working towards the digital integration of both armed forces.
