NATO plans to develop an enterprise-wide architecture for its future air command and control capabilities and is now soliciting information from members' industries about their latest technologies.

"This investigation is researching potential [information technology] and interoperability solutions to support operational- and tactical-level planning, tasking, and control of joint air operations," a request for information states. The notice was published today.

Functional areas of interest include strategy development, surveillance, asset management and integration of space, cyber and electronic warfare operations, among others, according to the RFI. All commercial, government and military off-the-shelf technologies are of interest.

Responses are due by Jan. 31.
