NATO Communications and Information Systems Services Agency
The NATO Communication and Information Systems Services Agency (NCSA), was a service provider to its NATO and national customers. Wherever NATO deployed on operations or exercises, NCSA was there, providing communication and information systems (CIS) services in support of the mission. Equally important, NCSA supported NATO’s ten major headquarters in Europe, North America, and Asia.
In 2012, as part of a NATO reorganization, NCSA was deactivated and major elements were realigned to create a portion of the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) and to create the NATO Communication and Information Systems Group (NCISG). NCI Agency provides NATO network core enterprise services, operational and exercise support, and program management. NCISG, aligned under Allied Command Operations, provides deployable communication and information systems to forward deploying elements of the NATO command structure and NATO joint task force headquarters.
