The 15 nations¹ participating in NATO’s Alliance Ground Surveillance
(AGS) programme have completed the signature process of the Programme
Memorandum of Understanding (PMOU). This is a significant step towards
realizing this essential operational capability for NATO.
The following nations are participating in the AGS acquisition
programme: Bulgaria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia,
Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Romania,
Slovakia, Slovenia, and the United States of America.
The primary ground segment component will consist of a number of ground
stations in different configurations, such as mobile and transportable
configurations, which will provide data link connectivity, data
processing and exploitation capabilities, and interfaces for
interoperability with C2ISR systems. The AGS Core ground segment will
also include dedicated mission support facilities at the AGS Main
Operating Bases (MOB), and ground stations for flight control of the
UAVs. The Main Operating Base will be located at Sigonella Air Base, Italy.
