LCU increasingly involved in NATO Research studies
Link Campus University experts got involved in NATO INDUSTRIAL ADVISORY GROUP (NIAG) studies providing operational and economical recommendations to NATO member countries.
Link Campus has been designated in several NATO INDUSTRIAL ADVISORY GROUP (NIAG) studies. This time LCU experts will provide operational and economical recommendations to the NATO member states in cooperation with American and European big players of the defence industry, including Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Bae Systens, Kongsberg, Saab end Leonardo.
NIAG is a high level consultative and advisory body of senior industrialists of NATO member countries, acting under the Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD). According to its website, it acts according to the following objectives:
- Provide a forum for free exchange of views on industrial, technical, economic, management and other relevant aspects of research, development and production of armament equipment within the Alliance;
- Provide industry’s advice to the CNAD on how to foster government-to-industry and industry-to-industry armaments co-operation within the Alliance;
- Provide optimal use of NIAG resources to assist Main Armaments Groups, and their subordinate bodies, in exploring opportunities for international collaboration, and seeking timely and efficiently ways to satisfy NATO military requirements.
Earlier this year, Link Campus University has been named the coordinator of the two NATO Research Projects, namely WITNESS (Wide InTegration of sensor Networks to Enable Smart Surveillance) and MIDAS (Control of a team of mini-UAVs to support counter-terrorism missions).
