It is the turn of the Germany Holland axis. In spite of the "common European dream", purely bilateral agreements continue that concern crucial aspects of continental policy.
Coordination of military operations may not soon be limited to communications between units in the same country.
Germany and Holland have created a common military network, TEN. The acronym stands for Tactical Edge Networking, a network that helps soldiers of the two nations coordinate operations. The agreement would also provide for the sharing of devices and patents militari.
The first phase of this Germany-Holland axis will link German land operations with the Dutch tactical communication program.
The network includes two centers. The first, a headquarters in Germany, in Koblenz. The second, a tactical seat in the Amersfoort military center in the Netherlands.
In the intentions of the subscribers, this Germany-Holland axis should accelerate the development of common standards and technologies. "In the future" could benefit the whole European defense system, both on a traditional and cyberwarfare level.
The agreement, it says, will better integrate the joint operations of Germany and the Netherlands into the NATO framework. The press release hopes that the agreement will extend to other states.
With many greetings to the Union.
