Exercise Griffin Strike 2016
Nexor chosen as a trusted partner in BT’s Smart HQ
Our cross-domain expertise has been recognised by Systems Integrator, BT, to support its new Smart HQ capability for command and control centres. This is being demonstrated as part of Exercise Griffin Strike 2016, which is a live exercise by joint UK and French forces.
Smart HQ: Deploying the HQ of the future – now
Developed at BT’s R&D centre at Adastral Park, the Smart HQ brings together innovative capabilities to create an agile, collaborative, wireless-enabled operational command centre.
One that can be deployed quickly, operate in a multi-component environment (maritime, land, air, space, cyber, situational awareness), allowing the right information to reach the right person at the right time quickly and securely. So the right decisions can be made.
We were selected for our expertise in securely exchanging information across domains with different trust levels, a must-have for co-ordinating armed forces in the field.
The Smart HQ is being developed by carefully chosen partners who provide specialist capabilities. The other partners include:
- Secure Cloud
International coalition in cyber security
Exercise Griffin Strike 2016 is a large exercise being held over a week in April on the Salisbury Plain Training Area. It is the culmination of six years of UK-French military cooperation, known as the Combined Joint Expeditionary Force (CJEF), and will demonstrate the CJEF’s potential high-readiness to deploy.
French military units, equipment and vehicles will join forces with those of the Royal Navy, Army and RAF. Interoperability training will include ground close combat, mechanised movements and air assault insertions. Maritime activities will include amphibious assault, aviation and combat logistics patrols.
More details of Exercise Griffin Strike 2016 are available on the MOD website.
