The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) selected Atlantic Strategic Partnership for Advanced All-domain Resilient Operations (ASPAARO) team to conduct one of three Risk Reduction and Feasibility Studies (RRFS) that aims to suggest technical solutions for the Alliance Future Surveillance and Control (AFSC).

In November 2021, Airbus with subcontractors Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems (UK), Exence (Poland), GMV (Spain), IBM (US), KONGSBERG (Norway), Lockheed Martin (US) and MDA (Canada) submitted a proposal to NSPA outlining how this transatlantic team would address the complexities of NATO’s future capability requirements.

The selection of the ASPAARO team as a study partner represents an important step toward providing NATO with tactical surveillance, command and control capabilities and replace the current Airborne Warning and Control System fleet which will reach the end of its service life around 2035.

Over the next months the ASPAARO team will perform a thorough assessment of a fully distributed surveillance model; refine details; assess related feasibility, risks and costs; and provide a recommended technical solution with proven technologies, open standards and interfaces for the multi-domain capabilities AFSC shall provide.
