NATO Delegates visit UKHO for Defence Talk

United Kingdom Hydrographic Office
: 19 April, 2008  (Company News)
The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has hosted 18 North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) delegates to a week of important Defence workshops aimed at developing digital products.
UK National Hydrographer, Rear Admiral Ian Moncrieff, was on hand to welcome delegates to a two day Electronic Mine Warfare Pilot workshop which was followed by a further two day workshop to review three Allied Tactical Publications.


The events were organised and hosted by the UK Mine Warfare Data Centre (MWDC), which is part of the Maritime Environment Information Centre (MEIC) within Defence. The purpose of the workshop was to make recommendations to NATO on the data exchange formats required to migrate from traditional paper products to Electronic Mine Warfare Pilots. There was unanimous support for discontinuing hard copy production in favour of concentrating all efforts on the ability to generate Additional Military Layers (AML) and Mine Warfare Mission Specific Datasets. Demonstrations from UK, Germany, Spain and Turkey showed what NATO nations are already doing to develop digital geospatial products and display software. Head of MEIC, Nick Weaver, said: 'This is the first time that so many representatives from NATO nations' MWDCs have got together in one place, and it proved extremely useful for sharing knowledge, resolving issues and developing relationships - as well as providing an opportunity to socialise at an evening skittles event.'
