Initially, work will be based on the BOWMAN, Cormorant, and Skynet 5 systems, but the programme includes a plan to expand the number of systems addressed by JNIB as soon as practical.
Brigadier Rick Bounsall, the BATCIS IPT Team Leader, said; "Following a successful pilot that has demonstrated how Industry and the MoD can work together to drive interoperability solutions across networks, I am delighted to see the full launch of JNIB which is a major step forward in providing the communications backbone to support Networked Enabled Capability (NEC).
The integration of Battlefield Information System Applications (BISAs) onto BOWMAN is being greatly assisted through the Joint System Integration Body, and now JNIB will allow integration across the bearer networks.
