NATO contracts Sopra for mission planning

NATO has contracted Sopra Steria in partnership with Savi Technology to enhance and integrate planning capabilities.

Sopra will provide its Logistics Functional Services (LOGFS) programme to deliver interoperable logistics capabilities across multiple functions, including mission planning, asset and consignment management, medical support, and movement and transport planning.

Bert Tiems, service line chief for service support and business applications, NATO communications and information agency, said: “Our absolute priority with the LOGFS programme is to support NATO’s commands and nations to achieve a more collective approach to logistics on NATO missions.”

The system will enable authorised staff to view and manipulate accurate logistics data and information. The system will deliver full integration into NATO’s suite of back-end services and systems. It will fully support NATO’s security policies and standards.

Sopra Steria will use Savi’s sensor technology to track items in real time across a variety of geographies.

John Torrie, Sopra Steria deputy CEO said: “Our technical solution will bring innovation to NATO while making good use of the existing NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) investment. We have an experienced team from across NATO nations which will deliver the solution to meet NATO’s current and future operational demands.”
