    Last year, Germany and the Netherlands signed an agreement to pursue the first-ever joint military internet, known as the Tactical Edge Networking (TEN) program. TEN will unify communications between the Bundeswehr's land-based operations and the Netherlands MoD's 'FOXTROT' tactical communications program.

    This means that soldiers from both governments will be able to use the same equipment, such as computers, radios and other communications systems.

    As TEN is the first project of its kind, SMi Group are delighted to announce that Colonel Robert Miedema, Program Manager FOXTROT and NLD Program Lead TEN, Netherlands MoD, will be speaking at Mobile Deployable Communications 2021 to provide updates and insight into the program.

    Colonel Robert Miedema will be presenting on "Tactical Edge Networking Towards Digital Integration (Interoperability 2.0),” which will cover:

    • An update on the DEU/NLD TEN Program
    • Towards product delivery and realizing benefits Spiral Zero (2023)
    • Amplifying interoperability through FMN Tactical Edge Syndicate

    Colonel Robert Miedema will be joined by other CIS program managers and communications experts, who will be providing updates and insight into the latest communication technologies.
