NATIONAL INFORMATION EXCHANGE MODEL

The Tactical Infrastructure Enterprise Services Coalition Warfare Program (TIES CWP) used NIEM to improve interoperability and information sharing between the U.S. and coalition partners. During a June 2014 demonstration, the U.S. Army successfully exchanged Position Reports, Air Track information, and Observed Position Reports with coalition partners using NIEM 3.0-conformant messages through a request-response web service environment. This is the first time this type of information has been exchanged among participants.

The U.S. Army has taken several foundational steps to introduce the NIEM approach to NATO for improving data interoperability among NATO and coalition forces, and for demonstrating how NIEM-based data exchange implementations can help fulfill NATO's Federated Mission Networking information sharing requirements.
